A family determined to raise money to help stop the spread of cancer, are holding a second fundraising golf day in aid of Cancer Research.

Vanita Lightfoot, whose husband Trevor died after bowel cancer spread to his liver just under two years ago, is hoping businesses and individuals will support the Trevor Lightfoot Memorial charity Golf Day on July 3 at March Golf Club.

In a letter to businesses Vanita explains that as well as remembering Trevor, the day also has a positive result.

“When someone has cancer to hear that it has spread and cannot be cured is truly devastating beyond all words and I really wish to help stop this happening to others. If the cancer is contained it is far more treatable.”

Vanita is appealing for donations, raffle prizes and sponsorship. Businesses can sponsor a hole for £25 and place advertising boards on the course.

Anyone able to help should call Vanita on 07806 754574. Donations can also be brought into the Citizen office at 11 Union Street.

Fifty-seven-year-old Trevor was a commercial manager at Wisbech-based Kier and a keen golfer. He and Vanita, who lives in Wisbech, had been married for almost 40 years.

Said Vanita: “I want to really stop others from going through the nightmare we have been through and are still going through. I miss him every second of every day which is why I want to do something positive to help other people.”

Last year’s golf day was such a success it raised £1,700. The family have decided to make it an annual event and hope for continued support.
