A THETFORD woman who has survived breast cancer has raised �1200 for charity.

Nine years ago Marilyn Cole was diagnosed with the disease but, to mark her 60th birthday, she wanted to be able to give something back to a local cancer charity.

A party at Thetford golf club with a fancy dress wild west theme collected the money for the West Suffolk Hospital Breast Care Unit Lizzy Duncan fund.

The event provided a lot of fun and laughter and Marilyn is hoping the money will help people who have breast cancer realise that life goes on even after the trauma of diagnosis.
