Friends’ year-long fundraising campaign for causes
Friends Kerry Farrant and Emma Williams, who both lost parents to cancer have raised £13,033.70, with their My Mum My Dad fundraising campaign.
The pair, who both live in Haverhill, decided to split the money with £6,516.85 each going to the Hospice and Addenbrooke’s cancer ward.
Emma lost her mum Patricia Redpath to cancer four years ago, while Kerry’s dad Sam Stewart passed away due to the disease in September, 2015. Mr Stewart received care and support from the Hospice at home.
To raise the funds Emma and Kerry embarked on a year-long fundraising drive holding numerous events, from bingo nights to family fun days, across the 2016, all of which were well supported.
Kerry said: “We were so well supported by everyone and we are so grateful. The support we had was unbelievable really.”
