A Great Cornard woman’s garden party proved a hit with visitors and raised vital funds for Cancer Research UK on Saturday.
Ivy Pound, from Canhams Road, hosted a variety of activities at her home, including cake sales, a tombola and a name-the-teddy competition, as well as entertainment from JT Steppers line dancers.
Mrs Pound said: “Everybody’s life has been affected by cancer in some way. If this can help to find a cure, then it has all been worthwhile.”
Around £1,700 was raised on the day and Mrs Pound is still collecting donations. Call her on 01787 370892.
