LOVED ones of a terminal cancer patient whose spirits were lifted by a special family trip have responded by offering a huge thank you to the charities that made it happen.
Jeanette Round, 47, was surrounded by 22 relatives for a day of fun and laughter at the Gulliver’s World theme park, courtesy of the HoneyRose Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Macmillan nurse Geoff Prince got in touch with the foundation which arranged for all of Jeanette’s six children and 11 grandchildren to have the Warrington venue all to themselves.
Now, despite being told that doctors can do no more to treat the lung cancer she has fought since February 2013, the Sutton grandmother and her family are still thinking of others.
As a thank you to the charities , the family held a fundraiser at Sutton Leach’s Sidac Social Club and managed to reach their £2,000 target .
“There was a bouncy castle, sumo, assault course, face painting, tombola, penalty shoot-out and special football matches including a boys against girls with the lads in wellies,” said Jeanette’s daughter, Cheryl.
“We wanted to express our thanks for what they did for Mum.
“She’s been getting worse and will be having no more treatment so we’re doing this to raise money for the Honey Rose and Macmillan. Mum had a special day and was there working on every stall! It was a brilliant day and everybody loved it.”
