AS National Blood Cancer Awareness month gets under way, a recovering leukaemia patient from Burton is busy fund-raising.
During September, Katherine Sinfield will be selling special 'blood cancer aware' ribbons to raise money for the charity Leukaemia CARE.
Katherine, from Balfour Street, said: "The ribbons serve two purposes – firstly they raise a little bit of money, but secondly the information cards which come with the ribbons will hopefully inspire people to find out more about the charity and blood cancer
"I'm asking for a minimum donation of £1 per ribbon – but if you can afford to give more that's a bonus."
For more information on how to get hold of the ribbons, contact Katherine's husband Stephen at the Burton Mail on 01283 524868.
