MORE than £1,000 has been raised in one day to help a Salisbury woman complete her bucket list.

Carol Adlam, of George Street, was rushed to hospital on 22 February, where she was diagnosed with primary lung cancer and secondary brain tumours.

She started a course of chemotherapy in Southampton, but had to stop after catching an infection and was hospitalised for five weeks and later found out the disease had spread to her liver and spine.

Kelly Adlam, Carol's daughter, said doctors decided chemotherapy would not be effective and encouraged Carol to "enjoy the time she has got left with her family".

Kelly, and her partner Tom, decided to start fundraising after a number of people told them they would like to help Carol complete a bucket list of wishes for the rest of her life.

This includes caravanning in Weymouth, going to see a show, a night out with friends, a family meal for both sides of the family and hopes to celebrate her 60th birthday in December.

The pair set a fundraising target of £200, but reached it within 24 hours of the page going live, with friends, relatives and kind strangers raising more than £1,000 for Carol.

Kelly said she was "absolutely ecstatic" with the result.

She said: "We cannot believe it, we are just so thankful for all the lovely donations, messages and well wishes.

"It's so supportive knowing that there are so many lovely people out there who're supporting us and helping to make my mum's bucket list wishes come true.

"Never did we think we'd receive our target of £200 so quickly, let alone £1,000!"
