FRIENDS and family of a mum with inoperable cancer are hoping to have raised thousands of pounds to send her on a dream holiday.

Cathryn Wyllie was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and tests showed it had spread and could not be removed.

Her sister-in-law Paula Willis and niece Ami Willis organised a family fun day in her honour on Saturday.

They want to send the 29-year-old, of Beacon Way, Park Gate, her husband Paul and their four children on the holiday of a lifetime.

Ami and Paula hope to raise around £3,000 from the event.

Cathryn said: ‘The day was really nice.

‘I held a fundraising event earlier this year and raised around £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

‘Ami said I should have some money to do something nice with and then she and Paula decided to do this.

‘I would love to go on a cruise and I would also love to go to Las Vegas – it just depends if I can fly that far because I could get quite tired.

‘We would like to have a family holiday with the children. Even something small would be really nice.’

The family fun day, held at the Warsash Wasps SFC ground in New Road, Warsash, saw hundreds of people take part in games and activities including football and a bouncy castle.

Stallholders and visitors paid a donation to get in.

Paula, 46, of Redlands Lane, Fareham, said: ‘We just wanted to get something together to help raise some money to send Cathryn and her family on a dream holiday.

‘It is her dream to go to Las Vegas but obviously with insurance and everything it will cost a lot.

‘We just want to raise as much as we can so she can have a nice holiday wherever it might be.

‘We’re grateful to everyone who came along and everyone who donated money towards the fund. It was a good day.’
