Family and friends of much-loved Rugby woman Christine Addison have done it again.

Three fundraising events in Christine’s memory have helped raise a total of £8,577 for people with cancer.

She touched the hearts of hundreds of people during her life and helped raise thousands of pounds for others before she lost her brave fight against breast cancer, aged 36.

Her twin sister, Rachel Hoggins, said she was “overwhelmed” by the support given to the recent fete, ball and golf day.

She said: “It’s all just amazing and nice to know we have so much support for our fundraising group Christine’s Crew.

“I know lots of people are looking forward to next year’s ball and I’d like to thank everybody who has helped in any way.”

The fete took place in Long Lawford last Saturday and included stalls, Hayley’s Impact Dance, games and refreshments.

Jo Jackson, who helped organise the event, said: “Long Lawford Fete takes place every year and this year the fete committee decided they would donate all the money raised to Christine’s Crew.

“Christine and her family lived in the village and their dad Keith used to be on the fete committee. Christine’s sister said she has many happy memories of her and Christine at the village fetes.

“Special praise must go to the fete committee - without them we wouldn’t have raised so much.”
