Ball raises £11,000 for fight against asbestos-related cancer

THREE women who all lost their fathers to mesothelioma have raised a staggering £11,000 for the battle against the asbestos-related cancer. Amanda Miller, Fran Milner and Rachel Thackray organised a sell-out fundraising ball in aid of Mesothelioma UK at Drax Sports and Social Club near Selby last weekend.

kierstonThe night of glitz and glamour, featuring auctions and raffles, was attended by former EastEnders actress Kierston Wareing, who is patron of the charity, accompanied by her friend, author B W Knight. The organisers, who raised £7,500 through a similar event last year and £4,500 in 2012, said they were overwhelmed by the success of the event.

Amanda, of Thorne, said: “ Our goal when starting to organise a ball was to try and raise awareness of this awful condition. We had no idea that we could raise so much.” Rachel, of Osgodby, said that raising so much money had made all the hard work worthwhile. “We have had such great support from the community and sponsors. I am proud to have been involved.”

Fran, of Carlton, said: “We are so grateful for the generosity of those who supported the events and turned up on the night. Everyone had a great time and some real good has been done’. The women praised Kierston for backing the event, saying it helped raise the profile of the ‘awful disease.’

Kierston, who played Kirsty Branning in the BBC soap until Christmas and became a patron of Mesothelioma UK after her mother Carol died from the disease, said it relied on the support of great events such as this. “The charity helps people very day,” she said. “The money is much appreciated.”

Ball sponsor and friend, Howard Bonnett of Corries Solicitors Limited of York, said Amanda, Fran and Rachel’s achievements were inspiring. “Those who attended and helped will make a real difference to asbestos victims not only in Yorkshire but nationwide,” he added.

Kierston Wareing at The Dress Company

Eastenders Actress Kierston Wareing came into The Dress Company this week …

A SOAP star will be guest of honour at a ball being held near Selby to raise funds for the battle against the asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma.

kierston2BAFTA -nominated former EastEnders actress Kierston Wareing, who played Kirsty Branning in the BBC drama until Christmas, became a patron of Mesothelioma UK after her mother Carol died from the disease.

She will attend a ball being organised on Saturday at Drax Sports and Social Club by three local women, Fran Miller, of Carlton, Rachel Thackray, of Osgodby and Amanda Miller, of Thorne, who all have personal experience of the devastating impact of the illness.

Fran’s father Peter Bason, of Camblesforth, Amanda’s father, Dennis Digby, of Snaith, and Rachel’s father Toni Spooner, of Drax, have all died from the cancer in the past few years.

Saturday’s event is the third in a series of balls held by the trio to raise public awareness of the disease and raise funds for Mesothelioma UK.

Amanda said it was ‘wonderful’ to have someone of Kierston’s standing to support the ball. “She understands how devastating the loss of a loved one can be from this terrible disease,” she said.

Rachel said: “ It is always been our hope to raise the profile of this awful disease. Kierston’s story and profile as a leading actress will be of enormous help”

Howard Bonnett, of Corries Solicitors Limited of York, who is a friend of Fran and Amanda, said mesothelioma was often thought of as a man’s disease but Kierston’s mother was one of an ever increasing number of women who were dying through it.

“Nationally 400 of the 2,600 annual mesothelioma victims are women,” he added.

The ball is a complete sell-out but anyone wanting to donate raffle prizes or auction lots to help raise more money can contact Amanda Miller on 07899 761458.
