A woman who lost loved ones to cancer is urging people to take part in a world record attempt in Ipswich today.

Sharon Wragg, a conveyancer at Kerseys Solicitors, will don her tutu and fairy wings to help raise money for a cancer ward at Ipswich Hospital.

The attempt, dubbed ‘The March of 1,000 Fairies’, hopes to see the highest number of people dressed as fairies ever gathered in one place.

The location has been set as the Cornhill in Ipswich and all the money will go to Woolverstone Wish Appeal which is fundraising to refurbish the chemotherapy outpatient clinics and day unit in the Woolverstone Wing of Ipswich Hospital.

Sharon, 45, said: “Unfortunately cancer touches so many of our lives in one way or other. I’ve lost two aunts to cancer and this year alone I’ve known three people, who were only in their 40s, lose their battle against this awful illness.

“It’s made me more aware than ever of how devastating cancer can be. But it is the little things, such as getting treatment in comfortable and private surroundings, which go some way to helping make such a difficult experience more bearable.

“That’s why I’m taking part to
help Woolverstone Wish reach its goal.”
