Whipround raises £600

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

A DUNDEE-based fac­tory has do­nated £600 to­wards a lo­cal woman’s life sav­ing cancer treat­ment.

Tr a c ey B u r k e , from Ardler, was di­ag­nosed with cer­vi­cal cancer three years ago at the age of 27.

Her hus­band Greg set up a fundrais­ing drive on May 13 in a bid to raise cash to send her abroad for im­munother­apy cost­ing £90k – with a £70k de­posit needed.

A fundrais­ing page now sits at more than £88,000, de­spite only run­ning for a num­ber of weeks.

Now, work­ers atTokheim – based at the city’s West Pitk­erro In­dus­trial Es­tate – have held a whipround for the 30-year-old.

The work­ers were able to do­nate £600 to­wards the treat­ment.
