A LEVENMOUTH social club has inspired the local community to rally round a Methilhill woman battling against cancer.

The Methil Ex-Servicemen’s Club hopes to raise funds to help Anna Flaws, whose campaign for equal access to cancer treatment across the UK, has featured in the Mail, pay for further rounds of life-prolonging drug, Herceptin.

Anna is currently undergoing a second round of chemotherapy and hopes to receive another round of Herceptin afterwards.

The charity concert will feature two bands ‘Glam Rock’ and ‘5 blondes’, a raffle and refreshments.

Club conveners Derek Cussik and Alistair Gray have been working to rally the support of the local community and convinced seven Levenmouth taxi companies to each donate £100.

The club is also appealing for raffle prizes and hope to secure signed Celtic, Rangers and Dunfermline strips.

Mr Cussick said: “We hold a charity event to help a local person or organisation every year and this time we felt raising funds to help Anna was ideal.”

Anna said: “It’s an amazing gesture. For an entire year local people have been working to keep me alive and it’s amazing to have the support of people you don’t even know.”

The concert will begin at 3:30pm on Sunday March 4. Tickets cost £5 and can be purchased by contacting Methil and District Ex Servicemen’s Club on 01333 423 520.
