TWO women who lost their dads to cancer organised a fundraising event to collect cash for charity in their memory.

Barbara Taylor, 37, and Jackie Hinsley, 40, raised £735 with the help of their friends and family and Nutbrook Cricket Club.

Coffee, tea and cakes helped to raise the cash as well as small stalls.

Barbara said “Last year we held the event at my house but we wanted to expand.

“The cricket club said we could use the hall for free which meant we could have more stalls and raise more money.

“We both lost our fathers to cancer and it’s something that affects everyone.

“We’re over-the-moon with the money we’ve raised because it’s for such a good cause.”
