A COMMUNITY fundraising event in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care is being held in Saffron Walden next month.
Lady Sylvia Morrow will be opening her beautiful gardens and having a hog roast on Saturday July 4 from 5.30pm to 8.30pm at Broadacres, Seven Devils Lane.
Lady Morrow's decision comes as a 'thank you' to Marie Curie Cancer Care for the care her husband received by nurse and friend, Anne Harlow.
She said: "Anne made such a difference to us, besides the wonderful care she gave my husband. She liaised between the doctors on our behalf and told us what to expect at such a difficult time for us all."
