A THIS Morning presenter showed her support for an Ellesmere Port woman’s valiant efforts to honour the memory of her sister-in-law.
On Friday, Terri Dwyer drew the lucky winners in a charity auction which has already raised more than £6,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Suzy Young, from Ellesmere Port, lost her much-loved sister-in-law Lila Young to breast cancer on August 20.
The prizes included a week’s holiday at a cottage to Snowdonia, six months gym membership at the Racquet Club in Liverpool and a Kindle 3G donated by Cre8space.
All proceeds are going to the charity’s Go Pink Campaign, which runs throughout October to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Suzy said: “Lila’s smile lit up a room and she never gave up hope of winning her battle with breast cancer.
“All this is in her memory, and I’m delighted by how it has snowballed into such a big event.
“We’re so grateful to everyone who has donated prizes and we’re so pleased to have Terri’s support.”
Terri drew the raffle at noon on Friday at the iconic Port of Liverpool Building, where Suzy works.
Meanwhile, Suzy’s son was Going Pink with school friends at Childer Thornton County Primary School, as will the children at St Brigid’s School in Denbigh, where Lila was a business studies teacher.
