Breast cancer sufferer Caroline and her friends donate cheque for £13,000 to Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust
A group of fundraisers from Market Deeping have handed over a cheque for £13,887.28 to Peterborough City Hospital in honour of a friend battling breast cancer.
Local hairdresser Caroline Clifton was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2016 and chose to share her journey openly with friends and clients. A group of Caroline’s school friends and her sister decided to do something positive.
The group organised an evening event which included a combination of live entertainment, sponsored head shaves, a silent auction and raffle.
Caroline, who was told last month her breast cancer surgery had been a success, said: “It was amazing to see how many people wanted to show their support for our local Oncology Department. I’m really very thankful to the team at Peterborough City Hospital Oncology Ward and to all the new friends I’ve made.”
