A CARNIVALITE fighting cancer has thanked friends who helped raise money to tackle the illness.

Mother-of-one Suzanne Culverwell, who works at the Morrisons distribution centre in Bridgwater and has been a member of Wills Carnival Club for 29 years, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in February.

She is now in remission but still needs regular medication.

She is pictured with Steve Bradley, Paul Barker and Laura Wiggins, who raised £1,700 for Cancer Research UK by completing the Bristol Half Marathon.
