Proceeds from a charity night featuring an ABBA tribute act at Sleaford’s Playhouse have been presented to Lincoln County Hospital’s Breast Cancer Unit.

The event last month was organised by Jenny Wright, of Ruskington, and her family, after she twice underwent treatment, first for breast cancer and then thyroid cancer.

It included a performance by Jenny’s daughter’s successful tribute group, Planet ABBA.

Surgeon Jibril Jibril (pictured to the left of Mrs Wright behind the cheque) received the £1,800 raised from ticket sales, a raffle and auction along with extra donations made on the night. The money will go towards purchasing a lipo-filler for the cancer unit. This piece of equipment restores the breast to its natural shape following a lumpectomy procedure.
