Claire Maddison, of Chaffinch Court, was invited along to an End of Chemo Party to celebrate finishing her course of treatment for breast cancer.

The event, at Bedlington Market Place Social Club, was organised by her friends as a fundraiser for Cancer Research UK.

‘The Calendar Lads’ from Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust performed Something Inside So Strong, and Fastrack Flooring gave a contribution. An impressive £3,510 was raised.

Claire said: “Having treatment for cancer has been incredibly difficult and I am delighted that friends, family and the community got together to celebrate and support the event. Thanks to everyone who helped make the event such a huge success.”
