Women dare to bare for cancer cause
1:30pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
FAMILY and friends of a Droitwich Spa cancer sufferer are daring to bare as part of a fundraising campaign.
People inspired by resident Lisa Peters, who was diagnosed with an aggressive form of the disease, want to raise £10,000 for Cancer Research UK, St Richard’s Hospice and the new radiotherapy unit at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
Lisa was first diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent lumpectomy surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. However, just a few months after being told she was in remission, it was discovered she has cancer of the spine.
Family and friends now want to raise money and urge people not to ignore the danger signs of cancer.
Walkers have already trekked from Malvern to Worcester earlier this year to raise £2,000 towards the target.
A family fun day took place at Westcroft Arms on May 25 and at the Star and Garter pub on August 25.
The latest charity efforts have seen friends, gathered by Lisa’s daughter Peggan, pose for a Calendar Girls-style calendar for 2014.
It will be on sale from Saturday, October 19 outside Droitwich’s Cancer Research shop, at Le Spa health and beauty salon, Beaver Bureau, The Star and Garter and Julies Cafe. The photos were taken by Tammie Louise Photography.
The next event planned is a fundraising fancy dress night at the Spring Meadow pub from 7pm on November 1.
There will be live music by Mat Stinton, fun and games, a raffle and a prize for the best dressed.
