Fundraiser Stephanie raises £500 for cancer charities
10:20am Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
A FUNDRAISING event which was forced to change location at the last minute went ahead and raised about £500 for cancer charities.
Stephanie Walls’ event was due to take place at the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Sunday, but bad weather meant it was cancelled.
Instead, Mrs Walls was able to hold it at Coopers Beach Holiday Park, on Mersea Island, and raised about £500 for breast cancer charities.
During the event, a 320ft bra line was made out of more then 100 garments, each of which has now been donated to the mammogram unit at Clacton Hospital.
Mrs Walls said: “I was so happy it was able to go ahead and I’m very thankful to the holiday park for coming in to help at the last minute.”
