A brave mum battling her way to health after a successful brain tumour operation has every reason to be proud of her daughter.

For Sarah Hemstock (17) was inspired to do her bit to help sufferers by raising cash for a research charity.

Sarah, from Moulton, organised a tea party with her student friends at Spalding’s Post 16 Centre and they raised £54.75 for The Brain Tumour Charity.

Her mum, Claire (44), was diagnosed in January and had an operation to remove the tumour.

Sarah said: “It was hard to start with when we first found out, but she’s had the operation to have it removed and she’s on the long road to recovery.

“I thought it would be nice to do something for a charity that’s a bit close to me now – they are doing research into the condition and maybe one day they will be able to prevent brain tumours.”

Sarah is studying childcare and learning development level three and her student pals and staff were moved by her mum’s story and eager to help with the fundraising.

Staff and students baked cakes, there was also a quiz and a competition to guess the number of sweets in a jar.
