A SALISBURY teenager whose mum is fighting a rare form of cancer has raised more than £2,000 to help fund further research into the disease.

Alannah Smigielska-Phillips held a fundraising coffee morning on Saturday at St Michaels Church, which proved to be a massive hit with about £800 raised which has been added to online donations - pushing the total so far to £2030.

During the coffee morning there was a chance for people to get their hands on some special raffle prizes including a signed photograph of Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch, vouchers for restaurants, as well as donated items from Lulu Guinness, Charlie Bear, and Thruxton tickets to name a few.

The money raised will go to hospital charity PLANETS which is for pancreatic, liver, biliary and neuroendocrine tumour.

Alannah's mum Louisa has been battling a rare form of cancer, cholangiocarcinoma and has inspired the 15-year-old's fundraising efforts.

Alannah has thanked everyone who has supported her fundraising efforts and said a special thank you to her Religious Studies teacher MrsVaughen and her mother Hazel, Chris Bailey, Clare Yeates and Becky France, Sasha Smigielska and the Amesbury Abbey Group.
