A BREAST cancer sufferer is organising a fundraising day at Ilminster Cricket Club on Sunday (May 25) to raise money for a charity close to her heart.

Claire Rice was diagnosed in June last year and after a course of chemotherapy she has been given the all clear.

Now, Claire is putting on a family event at the cricket club to help raise funds for Breast Cancer Care and the Beacon Centre at Musgrove Park Hospital.

She said: "There will be a charity cricket match between past and present players.

"In the morning there is a youth league game and during the afternoon there will be cream teas and cakes and a barbecue.

"The staff were so caring with me and they made a bad situation as good as it could be."
