Help corner cancer this month with mulled wine and cheese.

Former Wilmington Gardens, Barking resident Barbara Stacey is holding a tasty fundraiser for charity Breast Cancer Care.

The 73-year-old underwent a mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy after being diagnosed with the disease four years ago.

“I’m still here to tell my story and it’s all down to the amazing treatment I received from the NHS King George and Queen’s Hospitals,” she said.

The event at Loxford Social Club is part of Save Our Melons, a campaign started by her son Tony.

Personal trainer Tony, 40, has cycled from London to Paris and ran seven marathons since starting the campaign in 2014.

The wine and cheese event starts at 2pm on Saturday, November 18.
