Last updated at 15:03, Friday, 28 March 2014
A Seaton woman turned her divorce into a positive by holding a party to raise money for Hospice at Home West Cumbria.
Natalie Elliott, 31, of Barncroft Avenue, held a divorce party at the Senhouse Street Working Men’s Club in Workington in memory of friend Margaret Mitchell, who died last June.
They first met on Natalie’s hen do in 2005 and had been close friends since.
The party attracted 80 people and raised £340, with a donation of £100 from Margaret’s son Craig and a £60 anonymous donation.
Natalie said: “I thought that something good had to come out of my divorce which is why I went ahead with the fund-raiser.
“My mum Janice Bond did a lot of fund-raising events with Margaret before she died and I admired what they did for the hospice.”
