When Jenny Pennington finished her treatment for breast cancer she wanted to give something back and so got together with old fundraising friend Chris Foreman to organise a charity evening.

With Holbeach man Chris having previously receovered from prostate cancer, the two decided to hold a square dance and hog roast evening at Holbeach Community Centre for Cancer Research.

The event, along with a raffle and an auction on the night, raised a whopping £6,258-54.

“I received so much help in my battle against cancer that I wanted to give something back,” said Jenny, who is now fully recovered.

“Chris feels the same. We have organised things before and wanted to do something again.”

Jenny, of Spalding Marsh, thanked her many friends for all their help and for their generous donations.
