The girls, who set out aiming of collect £1,000 towards cancer research after a friend was diagnosed with the disease, have now topped 28 times that and are showing no signs of slowing down.

The fun day will be held at the Sir Tom Finney pub in Central Drive on Sunday September 5 from noon with a packed programme of entertainment and activities.

Six performers and a DJ are all giving their services for free to hopefully push the fund total beyond the £30,000 mark.
