Fenland teenager receives �1k donation from Lions club for cancer treatment
A TEENAGER who had her leg amputated due to cancer received �1,000 from a Fenland Lions club.
Shannon Corr, of Whittlesey, received the cheque from Whittlesey Lions after fundraising by club members and the Elms Nursing Home.
She is waiting for a new prosthetic leg and hopes to pursue her dream of dancing.
Shannon stated “Although I have been lucky enough to have had help and support to raise the money required to pay for the prosthetic leg, this money will help go towards ongoing treatments and checkups.
“I am incredibly thankful to Whittlesey Lions Club and the nursing home for thinking of me.”

The Elms raised �125 from an auction which was matched by BUPA, which owns the home. The rest was raised by the Lions at fetes and from the club’s annual carol float run in December.
Rona Davis, manager of the Elms, said “We have enjoyed being able to help Shannon and the Lions Club. We are hoping to get involved in more community based projects such as this.”
