Sue Bolger, Chair of the Young Lives vs Cancer Hampshire Voluntary Group, was involved in raising funds and awareness for the charity for 25 years. Her husband Peter shares why it was important to raise money in her memory,
“We knew that Sue was so passionate about supporting children and young people with cancer, she trained as a nurse, was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. We were overwhelmed by the lovely comments and generous donations in Sue’s name on her In Memory page, which we knew she wanted set up to support Young Lives vs Cancer after being involved in the charity for so many years.”
