A mother from Barkston was joined by her teenage daughter as they raised close to £10,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Linda Painter, 52, of Barkston, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 but has now raised more than £8,000 for the charity with events including a trek in the Cotswolds and hosting a strawberry tea and plant sale in her village.

Linda said: “After being diagnosed in 2006 with breast cancer I wanted to put something back to help make sure that this devastating disease is stopped in its tracks.

“Taking part in the Challenge has been a rewarding and fun way to support a charity which does ground breaking research to help future generations.

“My friends have supported me endlessly and I would encourage everyone else to take part in Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s Challenge.”

Linda has also been supported by her daughter, Megan, who raised money at her school - Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School.
