CAMPAIGNERS on behalf of cancer sufferers have been recognised at a major awards ceremony.

Helen Hartin, senior fundraiser for CancerCare, and 90-year-old Joan Newby, a hard working volunteer, were recognised at The Pride of Lakeland Awards last week.

They were nominated in the Local Hero of the Year and Volunteer of the Year categories respectively and both won for their outstanding contribution working on behalf of cancer patients in the North Lancs and South Cumbria area.

Helen’s award was specifically for her work setting up The StarWalk, a night walk around Kendal which attracts people from all over the area.
