CANCER survivor Chloe Talbot held a family fun day to raise money for three charities who are fighting against the disease.
The event was held at Skelmersdale Football Club and people were entertained by live music, bird of prey demonstrations and a disco.
Kids got their faces painted and cartoon characters including Peppa Pig, Mickey Mouse and Buzz Lightyear were also around on the day, meeting lots of little fans.
Chloe, 32, said: “The event was a huge success, there was about 450 people that came down over the day.
“I was so overwhelmed by how many people supported us, it showed that Skelmersdale really does have a huge heart and we all pull together when it really matters.
“We raised over £1800 on the day, and I still have a further £1845 to come from other donations over the forthcoming weeks, giving a grand total of over £3600.
“I want to say a huge thank you to my fiancé, friends and Tanhouse Morris Dancers for all their support and helping out during the day.”
The money raised from the event will be split between Cancer Research, Millie’s appeal and Families against Neuroblastoma.
Chloe was diagnosed with skin cancer seven years ago and since then cancer has remained an issue close to her heart.
When Chloe heard about Millie’s plight, she was touched and decided to organise something to help her appeal.
Millie is suffering from stage four Neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy to combat the disease.
Chloe said: “Millie’s story is a heartbreaking one and when I heard about it I just wanted to do everything I could to help her.
“I organised the fun day and thought it was something Millie could come down to and enjoy – which she did.
“I run a party planning business and hosted her second birthday party for her, which I hope she enjoyed.
“I just want to do things that’ll help put a little smile on her face. If I can do anything to help, I will.”
