A CHESTER couple are planning their fourth fundraising dinner in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
Sally and Gary O’Reilly, committed themselves to fundraising for the charity after Sally was diagnosed with the illness four years ago.
Sally, 36, is now in remission following treatment at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
The dinner and auction is planned for April 23 at Chester Racecourse.Tickets, costing £40, will include a reception drink, three-course meal, coffee and entertainment.
Star attraction in the auction, which will be hosted by former Brookside star Vince Earl, is a three-night break at the Four Seasons Hotel in Cyprus, donated by Deva Travel Chester. Other items available will include a Liverpool shirt signed by Steven Gerrard, a signed England football shirt and a 1539 Chester races package. There will also be a raffle.
Gary said: “Sally realises how lucky she has been with her treatment and as part of the aftercare it is essential that we give something back and continue to raise awareness of leukaemia and continue to raise funds for Leukaemia Research, especially as it is the charity’s 50th anniversary.”
