A CANCER sufferer and her friends have raised £2,000 for Nightingale House Hospice.
Edna Purdey is terminally ill and her friends fear she is in the final stages of cancer.
But she still managed to take to the streets of Rhosddu in her wheelchair, pushed by her daughter Sharon on a sponsored walk for three afternoons.
They were joined by Edna's husband Peter and friends Nora Attard, Kathy Wilson, Rose Lounds, Tina Wilson, Julie Jones, Pam Davies, Jenny Jones, Cis Williams, Pat Parry, Jane Brymbo and the oldest girls in the group, Betty Davies, 75, and Hazel Jones, 76.
'We went on our walk and knocked on people's doors,' said Cis. 'We had buckets and identification from Nightingale House. We went into the bookies, the cake shop, everywhere and people were so generous. Passers by in the street were giving and we even held the postman's bike hostage for a bit of cash!'
The group also auctioned a signed Ryan Giggs shirt, a hairdressing voucher and other items and received £250 from Llangollen Golf Club.
