A spokesman for Sheffield Mums Against Cancer said: “Following on from the amazing success of last years launch event, we’re making it an annual thing!

“A night of fun and fundraising for local charities St Luke’s Hospice and Weston Park, enjoy fabulous food, dance the night away to tunes old and new, be a winner on the raffle or even get lucky in the auction.

“As well as many other glittering Prizes to auction she has some signed Rolling Stones memorabilia.”

SMAC founder Ceri Rodgers said: “As I get older, so many people around me are being touched by cancer in one way or another, whether watching someone we love suffer or living with cancer ourselves.

“After finding out yet another friend had been diagnosed last year, a Mum herself, the anger I had been feeling for a number of years reared its head, angry that cancer was stealing from everyday good people of all ages...it is just unrelenting.

“I was compelled to do more, I approached a number of local like minded mums that had their own experiences, they were immediately on board. We all know the drive and strength that each mum has at her core and the power we have in reserve when needed.

“Well with a bang, SMAC was born and before we knew it we had events planned throughout the year.”
