A cancer patient has donated almost £4,000 to St Helens Hospital to thank staff for their expert care.

Alison Colbeck organised an afternoon tea at a wine bar to raise cash for the hospital’s Burney Breast unit.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and has also received treatment at the hospital’s Lilac Centre.

She said: “The staff at the hospital have been so supportive and with the help of my family and friends I wanted to give a little back and help others who might need treatment.”
