A SWINDON breast cancer charity raised £13,000 at its charity ball.

The Aurora event was held on July 12 and was hosted by the Village Hotel.

Live music, an auction and a raffle hosted by BBC Sports presenter Manish Bhasin entertained over 200 guests at the event.

Charlayne Harding, co-founder of Aurora, said: “We are overwhelmed by the offers of help and money raised from the ball.

“It has demonstrated the wonderful support from the people in Swindon and Wiltshire.”

Ellie Chudleigh, a member of Aurora, added: “The team would like to thank everyone who supported the ball and helped in raising this money.”

The charity was set up in 2015 by a Swindon breast surgeon and breast care nurse to help women under 50 with a breast cancer diagnosis.
