Candles for Sally

From The Peaches Team

Sally and her daughter Sarah have championed Peaches since we launched. They have been our biggest supporters and raised an enormous amount of money. They have tirelessly campaigned, helping to raise the profile of womb cancer. Sally was a kind and generous woman and a wonderful ambassador for Peaches. We are so very grateful for everything she did for Peaches and for all of her support. We will never forget her x

From Hannah

Remembering a wonderful lady, who played a massive part in my childhood. Wonderful summer holidays camping in the back garden. I’m so grateful for all you did for me back then and always being there through the good and bad times as a child.

From Katy Leonard

I didn’t know Sally for very long but her warmth and gentle nature made me feel connected to her within minutes. It was a privilege to spend time in her company and film her experiences of being treated for womb cancer.
