A Manor Park resident is holding a charity auction to help a young cancer patient she saw on Facebook.

Lisa Terry, a former cancer patient herself, felt her heartstrings pull when she came across a page on the social media website called ‘One Wish’.

It detailed the struggle of Mitchell Heath, from Dagenham, who suffers from a rare form of brain cancer called Neuroblastoma.

To help raise money for his treatment, Lisa hopes to raise a minimum of £500 in a charity auction and she is currently collecting prizes from fundraisers.

Lisa is currently looking for donations and participants to join her on August 5 from 2pm at the Victoria Cross pub, Jack Cornwell Street, Manor Park, E12 5NN.
