Party to boost women’s Everest climb charity efforts

A CHARITY party will add to the fundraising total for three women set to trek to Everest Base Camp for Pancreatic Cancer UK.

Sisters Jodie and Alice Douglas, from Thorpe Hesley, will be joined by friend Janine Habbin, from Wickersley, on the 19-day challenge in March.

The event is in memory of the sisters’ dad Phillip, who lost his battle with cancer five years ago.

And the girls are to hold a party at House of Hugo on Carver Street in Sheffield on Friday, February 9, from 10pm to 3am.

The event will include a live DJ, sax player and raffle, which will also help boost the amount raised for PCUK.

Jodie (26) said: “Everyone is welcome. We are hoping to raise as much money as possible through all ticket sales and raffle donations going directly to Pancreatic Cancer UK charity.”

Pancreatic cancer has one of the lowest survival rates of cancers in the UK, with only five percent of people living five years after diagnosis.

PCUK supports those affected and invests in research and lobbying for greater recognition of the disease.

Tickets for the party are £15 and available from www.ticketarena.co.uk/events/PCUK-Fundraiser.
