Pancreatic Cancer UK

SKEGNESS, U K (Skegness Standard) - A loving daughter and her family have managed to raise hundreds for a charity which is close to their hearts.

Caroline Smith, 28, organised a whole day of entertainment and fun to help raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer UK charity which has helped her mother, Sandra Robinson, who is suffering from the condition.

The event was held at the Seaview pub in Skegness recently, where Caroline’s husband Matt Smith even got in a bath full of jelly for five hours to help raise money.

Over £1,107 has been raised so far with more money still to come in from relatives in Stoke on Trent and Chesterfield, as well as Skegness.

Caroline of Seaview Road, said: “It was an amazing day and it’s only just sinking in about what we’ve managed to raise and the event in general.

“I’m just so grateful to the pub and everyone who provided prizes for the raffle, entertainments and much more as it will be going to a charity which is so important.”

Through the charity’s support Caroline’s mother Sandra, who lives in Stoke on Trent, has defied doctors’ expectations and managed to live with pancreatic cancer, which she was diagnosed with in 2010.

“It’s amazing that my mum is still here today as we didn’t expect her to be around past nine to 11 months and she is still with us over two years later,” Caroline added.

“That’s why I wanted to support the charity even though I’d never done anything like it before.”

Fun and entertainment was provided by Sid Dennis and his son. The fun lasted well into the early hours.

Caroline said she would like to thank Sid Dennis Ltd, Travis Perkins, everyone who donated for the raffle, the pub and everyone who came.
