Sally Collins has been undergoing chemotherapy to help her fight Mesothelioma and breast cancer.

Mesothelioma is contracted through asbestos exposure to asbestos and is currently incurable.

Her sister, Julie Macnamara from Charfield, wanted to do something to help.

Working with her friends Tracy Trevelyan, Sandra Nute and Sue Simmons she brought the event, which included a grand draw, costume prizes and supper, together.

A total of £3,042 was raised on the night with more money coming in since.

This will be divided between Mesothelioma UK and Cancer Research UK.

People travelled from far and wide to come to the event. with Sally coming her home in Yorkshire.

She said: "I’m overwhelmed by the generosity, love and support shown by so many.

"The event was happy, uplifting and full of fun. Everyone had a wonderful time.

"I loved the fancy dress and had a wonderful evening from beginning to end, singing my heart out and dancing till I ached!’

Sally has started to organise the next event, a 'Rock and Roast' in Hull in June so that family, friends and colleagues in Yorkshire are able to go along.
