A group of friends from Dungannon are hoping to help a young mum who is seriously ill with cancer, to raise enough money to travel to the USA for treatment.

Thirty year-old Lisa Toner, who is mum to three young children, says she has been “overwhelmed” after more than £13,000 was raised in just two days when she set up a Go Fund Me web page.

And three of Lisa’s friends - Lisa Maguire, Stephanie Davidson and Justine McMahon - are hoping to add to that fantastic total by holding an event in Hagan’s Bar in the town on Friday 13 November from 8.30pm.

Lisa Maguire says the local business community in Dungannon has been “fantastic” so far by pledging a whole host of amazing prizes to be raffled on the night and extended her thanks to all those who have helped in any way.

Tickets for the night are available in Hagan’s Bar, State of the Art Tattoos or from Lisa on 07910764788, Justine 07766 881189 or Stephanie 07548 215579. An event page has also been set up on Facebook.
