Sisters raise money for cancer charity

For the 11th consecutive year, sisters Hazel Soffe and Jane Stapleton from Southampton have organised a ball in memory of their mum, Lesley, who died of cancer.


Hazel said: “One of mum’s final wishes was for donations to be made to CLIC Sargent. Mum said she couldn’t bear the thought of children having to experience the cancer treatment that she did.”

They have now raised over £24,000 for CLIC Sargent, a charity for children and young people with cancer.


Last year, Hazel became the Group Leader of the new CLIC Sargent Jean’s House Fundraising Group. The group raises funds for running costs of Jean’s House, which is the CLIC Sargent ‘Home from Home’ in Southampton for young cancer patients and their families to stay in. The house costs over £100,000 a year to run.


Liz Blunt from CLIC Sargent said: “A huge thank you to the Jean’s House Fundraising Group for raising £1,764, which is really needed to help with the costs.”
