Char­ity evening hits the right note

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - 24 Hours -

A WHIT­TLE­SEY care home has joined the cam­paign to raise money to help a teenager bat­tling against can­cer.

Shan­non Corr (15) of Glen­fields, Whit­tle­sey, had her right leg am­pu­tated af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed with a rare bone can­cer. Her fam­ily is now try­ing to raise £20,000 to help pay for a pros­thetic limb.

Judy Wil­son, man­ager of The Her­mitage Care Home in Whitle­sey, heard about the cam­paign from Lucy Cawthorne, a friend of Shan­non and Judy, and de­spite hav­ing never met Shan­non, de­cided to hold a fundrais­ing evening, with a singer, raf­fle and other en­ter­tain­ment at her vil­lage hall in Blun­tisham, near Hunt­ing­don in May.

Mrs Wil­son said: “We raised £909 on the night, and Her­mitage agreed to round the fig­ure up to £1,000.

“I would like to thank Peter Jay, who sang on the night, and ev­ery­one who came along to help out.”
