[A] police officer is planning a number of events to raise money for three charities.
PC Debbie Hall, aged 47, is helping arrange two charity events with money raised going to Cancer Research UK and Eden Valley Hospice.
Debbie, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2002 and 2015 and is continuing to receive treatment at the Christie Hospital in Manchester, has been a police officer for over 13 years.
The two events that Debbie is organising are:
- A charity race night on 3rd March at Harraby Catholic Club, Carlisle. The event starts at 7pm, with the first race starting at 8pm.
- The ‘Let’s Make a Difference Charity Ball’ which is being held on 1st July at the Shepherds Inn, Carlisle. Doors open at 7pm for an evening of entertainment including the world’s number one Gary Barlow tribute act.
The charity race night is being organised by Debbie’s friend Lyndsey Nugent who works for Riverside.
Debbie said: “Anyone who is looking for a great night full of entertainment is welcome to attend and all proceeds will be going to great causes which are close to my heart.
“It is important that people continue to support charities that help those who are diagnosed with cancer or those looking to invest further money into research. Having lost my mother to cancer in 2007 and my own battles I know first-hand how crucial money donated and raised can be for local services. It’s thanks to research that I’m here today.
“The majority of people will have been impacted by cancer whether it be themselves or a loved one. Being diagnosed with cancer is completely shocking and very upsetting. I received excellent treatment and will carry on fighting no matter what because I am determined to not to let cancer win.”
If you are interested in attending either event or want more information on tickets please contact Debbie on 07909915787. You can also contact the Shepherds Inn on 01228 539766 for tickets to the charity ball.
