A KIND-HEARTED fundraiser is aiming to raise £1,000 for Breast Cancer Research by staging a special gala dinner - and she needs your help!
Jo Roberts, 27, of Foxholme Court in Crewe, has taken up Breast Cancer Breakthrough's £1,000 Challenge after reading an advert in women's magazine Marie Clare.
Now she is aiming to raise the amount needed at a special fundraising gala dinner at Wychwood Park Hotel in Weston on August 12.
She said: 'I have always liked the idea of being able to put on big events.
'I have got to sell 90 tickets and have sold 60 so far but there is enough room at the hotel for 160 so ideally I would like to sell as many as I can.'
All the people who take part in the challenge can nominate the name of a
loved one which will then be displayed permanently on the £1,000 Challengers' Wall, in London.
For tickets to Jo's event, priced £35 which includes a three-course meal and disco, phone 07792 745 344 or e-mail jo.roberts0504@ btinternet.com
