Jennifer Kennedy and her daughter Nicola McCann held a coffee morning and mini fun day recently at their home in Portadown.

The event was supported by over 150 visitors who enjoyed the festivities and the sunshine.

An amazing amount of £1,591.34 was raised and this will be restricted to research taking place in Northern Ireland Adele Harris at Cancer Research UK said, “Every hour, someone in Northern Ireland is diagnosed with cancer.

“Thanks to the generosity of Jennifer, Nicola and everyone who attended their coffee morning, we’re able to fund research which will help more men, women and children survive.

“Although the number of people being diagnosed with cancer is going up the good news is that, thanks to research, survival rates have doubled in the past 40 years. More people across Northern Ireland are now beating the disease than ever before. Cancer Research UK’s work is at the heart of that progress.

“Cancer Research UK receives no Government funding for its ground-breaking research.

“So funds raised through supporters like Jennifer is crucial to the work of doctors, nurses and scientists who work day and night to fight cancer on all fronts.”
