A PAIR of sisters from Stretton are hoping to dosey doe their way to fund-raising success at a barn dance organised to support charity.
Emily Roach and Lucy Roach-Bourne will be hosting the event at St Mary’s Church Hall in Stretton, in a bid to raise funds for the Christie Hospital in Manchester.
It is the second one they have held to back the hospital, which treated their Dad John when he was suffering from cancer.
Last year they made £1,500 through the barn dance, and they are aiming to top the £1,000 mark with this one, on September 7.
Miss Roach told the Mail: “We wanted to give the hospital something back after a family member had been there and had done such good work and helped us such a lot.”
The money will go towards a piece of equipment which detects cancer cells and attacks them before the person develops cancer.
The late Mr Roach, who was in his early 50s when he died, suffered from stomach cancer.
Miss Roach said she would also like to use the event to increase awareness about that type of cancer, which many people do not know a lot about. Early symptoms of stomach cancer can often be confused with other things. They include persistent indigestion, heartburn, feeling bloated and sick and
The barn dance will kick off at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £7.50 for adults of £20 for a family of four and are available by calling Miss Roach on 07950 346939.
