A young fundraiser has raised almost £500 for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation alongside two fundraising veterans.


Seven-year-old Sadie Hiscock from Penwortham joined Norma Blackburn and Margaret Dunn during their most recent drive sale as a “sales assistant”. She previously held her own toy sale to raise money for the charity last year.
