Maureen Hunter, who used to live in Southsea and the Havant area, was diagnosed with terminal cancer in her liver earlier this year.

The 67-year-old is now raising money to achieve her life-long dream of going to Venice or Rome.

Due to her health condition, the travel insurance is 
too costly for her pay for herself.

Maureen said: ‘This will be my last holiday with my husband who has Alzheimer’s disease. I hope to raise enough to go as our insurance are more than £600.

‘I have never asked for help of any kind and I have had times of struggling.

‘I am usually the one who is happy to help other people.

‘I wouldn’t ask but it is a dream I wish to come true before my health stops me fulfilling it.’

Maureen, who now lives in Salisbury, is hoping to go before November.
