RUGBY sisters Hannah and Kirsty Morgan-Brown will be at the funeral of their 40-year-old aunt tomorrow (Friday).

And they are determined to keep the final promise they made to her - to do what they could to help cancer charities.

Suzanne Whiting died on March 4 of with breast cancer.

Hannah, 24 and Kirsty, 20, of Poplar Grove, are taking part in this year’s Race for Life in Suzanne’s memory.

The event is being held in Rugby for the first time on July 31 and organisers hope 2,000 women and girls will sign up.

The girls said they will miss their “mad auntie”, who lived in Kent and had a 21-year-old son called Kelston.

They described Suzanne this week as a woman who “put everyone first”.

“She loved Champagne, bling, boots and shopping. She was always laughing and encouraging people to live life to the full. She was truly one of life’s characters,” they added.

Their father Richard, who is the manager of Rugby songstress Beth Tysall, said: “The girls promised Sue they would do charity work for cancer.

“It will be something they will want to carry on with in the future. They are looking forward to the race, although they haven’t started training yet.

“They know that Sue will be watching over them.”
