Daughter Goes Without Birthday Party To Raise Money For Charity

Tuesday November 5 2013


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A DAUGHTER sacrificed her 21st birthday party to raise money for a unit which treated her mother for cancer - and raised £3,100!

Chelsey Jewkes raised the money for The Well where her mum Carol, 49, had treatment for breast cancer.

About 100 people turned up for the fundraiser at Shafton WMC.

Carol, who is in remission after being diagnosed in 2010, said: "I'm very proud of Chelsey, my family, friends and people of Shafton and Grimethorpe who supported the event."

The Well is based at The Core on County Way, Barnsley, and anyone with cancer can get six free treatment sessions.
