SHOPPERS helped make a difference to the lives of people with breast cancer with a raffle.

Asda in Havant held the month-long competition to win hampers – and staff member Vanessa Spence helped out.

Mrs Spence, 48, has been undergoing treatment for the disease since being diagnosed a year ago.

She was at the grand raffle draw last week for Tinkled Pink which raises money for breast cancer research.

Mrs Spence, of Rosemary Way, Cowplain, said: ‘I have had to undergo chemotherapy, radiotherapy and a year-long drug course of Herceptin.

‘I’m so grateful to the staff at Queen Alexandra Hospital. I can’t fault them one bit. They have been magnificent to me, just amazing.

‘I have just had my mammogram and must wait three weeks for the results.

‘I’m a little bit on tenterhooks at the moment and my family are too.’

Mrs Spence was the guest of honour at the event at the superstore. Thousands of tickets were sold and several hampers were given out. It is not yet know how much was raised but it will go to Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Campaign.
