Thirty women helped to raise £250 for Macmillan Cancer Support during a ‘summer lights’ themed ladies night on Saturday.
“It is a charity very close to my heart because I’ve had friends and family who have either had cancer or sadly lost their battle,” said organiser Hannah McCreadie, who raises money for Macmillan each year.
“It was bedlam,” she added, “thirty women drinking and dancing a lot.”
The weekend event, with lots of food and drink and twinkling fairy lights, takes her fundraising total to more than £1,000 over the course of three years.
“I’m a busy mum to two kids and a childminder to 20 kiddies in Ely but I do like to do my bit for charity.
“My son Alfie did the big ‘Alfie’s Summer Challenge’ last summer for GOSH and my daughter and I are taking part in Race for Life in July alongside some of my childminding parents and other childminders.”
Ahead of the charity event, a number of Ely businesses – including Allgoods Delicatessen, Boots, Slimming World, Tesco, Treetops Soft Play and Waitrose – donated hampers and prizes for the raffle.
