Businesswoman Natalie Spencer has used her artistic talents to create cards in memory of her mum who died of bowel cancer.
Gabrielle Spencer, 56, from Walton-le-Dale, who was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2015, passed away in St Catherine’s Hospice, Lostock Hall.
Natalie, who runs her own design and illustration business called Designed By Natalie, will donate proceeds from the sale of the cards to the hospice whose caring staff helped manage Gabrielle’s pain and enable her to be more comfortable in her final days.
Natalie, 27, from Buckshaw Village, said: “My mum loved my design work so I thought there would be no better way than to design some Christmas cards in honour of her and to raise money for St Catherine’s. I miss my mum every day – she was my best friend and I have really struggled with her loss.”
