Huge congratulations to Berwickshire Housing Association Board Member Lynn Gray who completed her 24 hour ‘Danceathon’ in aid of Pancreatic Cancer Action, a charity very close to her heart.
Lynn sadly lost her father Rob to pancreatic cancer in May last year and decided to proactive and raise fund for the charity.
She said: “He was a huge part of our lives and after our mum’s passing 17 years ago, we were all closer than ever.
“I decided that being proactive would not only help me but would help others so I came up with the Danceathon to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer Action.”
