A COUPLE have raised £400 for charity while celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.

Shirley and Dennis Matthews, of Galmington Road, renewed their vows at the Old Municipal Buildings in Taunton before hosting a party at The Trident.

But instead of receiving presents, the pair asked guests to make a donation to Cancer Research UK as the charity has supported some of their friends and family in the past.

Shirley, 67, said: “It was a wonderful night and we would like to thank everybody who came along and donated to this worthwhile cause.”
