A CAMBUSLANG teenager has thanked everyone who has helped her raise almost £650 for charity.
Hannah Trodden (18), from Drumsagard, decided to hold a fundraising event for Cancer Research at Whitefield Bowling Club in Cambuslang, after a college friend was diagnosed with cancer.
Former Cathkin High pupil Hannah, who is studying Media with Communication at Clydebank College, has become great friends with fellow student Kayleigh Canning, from Helensburgh.
But Kayleigh, who turned 18 last month, was recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer - just weeks after losing her mum to cancer.
Rather than sit back and offer her friend morale support, Hannah decided to do something positive for the cause.
Hannah and Kayleigh had initially talked about doing the Race For Life together, but when Hannah saw something about fundraising for Cancer Research, she decided to do a little bit more.
As a result, she has been round many shops in the area, who kindly donated raffle prizes, with many friends and family donating home baking for sale.
In addition, the night at the bowling club featured a DJ and dancing.
Hannah previously told the Reformer: “It’s just an excuse for a good night out, where you can dance, with music, tombolas and raffles and raise money for a good cause.”
She initially set a fundraising target of £300, but was delighted when they more than smashed it.
Hannah told the Reformer: “My event went great. Everyone had an amazing time, and we got a buffet from Domino’s in Rutherglen for half price.
“It was a great night and I was so happy that everyone was so generous.
“I also crushed my target by raising £643 with donations still coming in!”
