Brixington mum raises cash for cancer
Businesses and residents helped a Brixington mum, who lost her three-year-old girl to cancer, raise �226 ahead of her charity trek along The Great Wall of China.
Justine Pyne, 39, Wordsworth Close, lost her daughter, Mia, to neuroblastoma four years last month.
And three years ago she pledged to give something back to the charity, Clic Sargent, which supported her - so she began volunteering in their Strand store.
Now she is on a mission to raise �1,000 from the trek next month and she began with a fundraiser at the store which included a tombola and a raffle.
Justine said: “We all had a great time at the shop fundraiser on Friday, it has really helped to support my Great Wall of China trek and I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that came down on the day.

“It was a great opportunity to get all my friends at the shop and the local community together to raise awareness of the support CLIC Sargent gives to families affected by childhood cancer – I can’t wait to set off on my walk now!”
She added that she wanted to thank local businesses including Tempus the jewellers, Inc., Little Evers, Scarlet, Vue cinema, and Heather, Dave and Sadie for donating prizes on the day.
