A FAMILY-led fundraising effort has put £3K into the coffers of a very special charity - with the prospect of more to come.

The money was raised in the name of Tracey Dallow who died from Lupus - a cruel incurable

illness that pitches the body into a battle against itself - three years ago.

Since then, the Dallow family, from Hereford, has devoted itself to fundraising in Tracey's name with efforts have ranged from a charity Zumba day to selling brooches and wristbands.

This week, in time for the third anniversary of Tracey's death, the family presented a cheque for the £3k raised so far to Lupus West Midlands.

And that, they say, is just the start.

More soon in the Hereford Times.
