Around £2,000 was made during a weekend of fun and fundraising for a Spalding mum-of-four who has just months to live.

That means the Rebekah’s Wish campaign has now raised about £9,000 of its £20,000 for Rebekah Dolby (33), of Queens Road, who has terminal cancer.

The fundraising efforts are to help Rebekah’s wish of securing her family’s future and paying off her mortgage.

The weekend started on Friday with a Princes and Princesses Ball at Spalding Services and Social Club, organised by friend Julie Winkett, which raised £500.

On Saturday Stewart and Tracey Bradley organised a family fun day at the Weston Fun Farm which made £1,000. Events including a dog show, balloon race, truck pull, tombola and raffle.

Mr Bradley said: “I have nothing but admiration for Rebekah. She is an inspiration. All she thinks about is her children.

“We will keep on doing events until she gets her wish.”

Finally, on Sunday a Bikini Girls and Kwik Fit Lads Car Wash took place at Kwik Fit in Spalding, organised by Samantha Cousins and Vicki Wells, raising £400.

Rebekah Dolby said: “It’s amazing what people are doing for us and it’s good that the community spirit is still here.

“We didn’t think we would get this far but it’s good that everybody has got together to help me.”

Teresa Dolby, Rebekah’s mum, added: “I’m absolutely amazed by all the support and I can’t thank people enough.

“It’s very difficult to keep everyone positive because Rebekah has her good days and she has her bad days.

“With the (four) children as well, it’s very hard work but it’s nice just to be there for them.”

The next event is a clairvoyant evening at Holbeach WI Hall on September 29 – call Tracey on 07544147770 for information.
