MORE than £2,000 has been donated to a charity thanks to the efforts of a cancer survivor.

Della Brockis, duty manager at the OAKhouse Bar Café in High Street, Maldon presented a cheque for £2092.16 to the Broomfield Hospital nurses who cared for her through her breast cancer treatment.

Last month, Mrs Brockis put on a fundraising night at the café to raise the money.

Mrs Brockis, who was diagnosed in 2013, said: “The event was a really, really good night, with more than 100 guests - everyone who supported me was there.

"I have just had my five years clear and organising this event has helped me to start to move on.”

The money raised will be used for specialist bras, compression garments, and education and training for staff.

She plans to organise another fundraising event for BRA in the future.
