Gift of life from survivors

Breast cancer survivors Ann Broderick (left) and Ruth Ellis (right) raised more than £800 from their latest bingo session to help new patients at Peterborough City Hospital.

Ann and Ruth, both from Crowland, and their regulars at the bingo in Moulton Chapel Village Hall have so far raised £3,500 – and hope to have another £1,000 to present to the hospital’s breast care unit soon. 
The latest donation was received by breast care nurse specialist Claire Ball.

Ann and Ruth have been five years clear from the disease and decided to give something back to the unit where they had their treatment so that more equipment can be provided to help patients.

Ann said: “We went through the breast cancer treatment together so it was nice to have a buddy.”
• Everyone is welcome to their next fundraising bingo at Moulton Chapel Village Hall, which starts at 7pm on Wednesday, November 26.
