FRIENDS and family came to the rescue after Solihull businesswoman Jill Cannings was ‘volunteered’ by her husband Nick for a charity fundraising initiative for Brain Tumour UK.
Jill took up the charity’s ‘£1,000 Challenge’ by holding a garden party at her home in Blythe Way and at the final count had beaten her target raising £1,460.
Jill said: “I was really busy at our office furniture and stationery business and didn’t feel I had time to organise such a challenging event. But friends, particularly Gill Tillman, and family rallied round and it was a really successful day. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
