A cancer survivor is planning a spring fair to raise cash for vital research she says helped save her life.

Lola Suter, 63, has organised and is hosting the event this Saturday and any money made will go to the Nottingham City Hospital Breast Institute.

She said: “They are carrying out vital research that helps not only people in Nottingham but all over the country.

“When you’ve been there and benefitted from the work that they do it makes you see things totally differently.

“There’s nothing I could do to repay them but this goes a little way towards helping others and furthering vital research that really is saving lives.

“Without them I wouldn’t be here, I wouldn’t be alive and I definitely wouldn’t be organising this coffee morning.”

The event, which will be held at the Greasley Parish Hall, on Dovecote Road, Hilltop,runs from 10am to 1pm.

There will be hand baked cakes, crafts, raffles, tombolas and many other stalls as well as cream teas.

Lola, who lives in Nuthall, added: “Getting cancer isn’t something you think about when you’re feeling healthy. I only found out through a routine mammogram.

“From the second I was diagnosed I received excellent care.”

The institute accommodates out-patient diagnosis, treatment and clinics for 35,000 patients each year.
