Char­ity fund for BBC star Diane

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BEEB weather pre­sen­ter Dianne Oxberry’s cause of death has been con­firmed as ovar­ian cancer by her hus­band, who is rais­ing funds to set up a char­ity in her name.

The 51-year-old died on Jan­uary 10, just weeks af­ter she was last on-air.

Ian Hin­dle launched a crowd­fund­ing page and wrote: “Dianne died in early Jan­uary af­ter a very short bat­tle with ovar­ian cancer.

“The tragic im­pact was felt not only by her fam­ily and friends, but also by the wider pub­lic whose lives she touched across more than 20 years’ TV and ra­dio pre­sent­ing.

“The money raised will be used to help fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als who have, or are suf­fer­ing from, this ag­gres­sive disease.”
