Southminster: Anne is praised for her fundraising efforts
9:00am Sunday 2nd September 2012 in Local News
An altruistic Southminster resident has raised more than £2,500 for the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity.
Anne Hill’s house in Southminster is well-known to locals because of the stall she sets up in her front garden.
Anne started supporting the charity after she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of 1999.
She underwent nine months of treatment and was inspired by her doctor, Professor Neville Davidson, who is the charity’s chairman.
Anne has been selling books, toys, CDs, DVDs and hand-made earrings from a stall outside her house in Steeple Road for nine years and has now raised more £2,500.
She also helps out at one of the charity’s shops in Burnham-on-Crouch.
Helen Rollason Cancer Charity supports people living with cancer through research, drug trials and an award-winning support centre in Chelmsford.
The charity’s Head of Fundraising Angela Lodge said: “Anne is a fantastic supporter for the charity as a fundraiser and a shop volunteer.
“Everyone at the charity is very grateful for her on-going support.”
