A cancer survivor from East Cambridgeshire is trying to raise £3,000 for the fight against the deadly disease, but can you help her?

Debbie Hitchings from Soham survived stage three breast cancer in 2017 and his now looking to raise as much cash as possible to celebrate her life.

Last year, Ms Hitchings raised £772 for charity Breast Cancer Now with a fundraising raffle at the Twenty Pence Garden Centre.

This year, as she celebrates her 60th birthday, she plans to host two events in a bid to raise £3,000 for the same charity.

She said: "Firstly, I am holding a birthday party but have asked for no gifts but donations to Breast Cancer Now and am holding a charity auction at my party.
