Kirstie needs you

Double lung transplant survivor is marking the first anniversary of major surgery with a charity ball.

Double lung transplant survivor Kirstie Tancock is organising a fund-raising ball to celebrate the first anniversary of her life-saving operation - and she wants you to join her.

Cystic fibrosis sufferer Kirstie, of Honiton, has organised a charity ball and tables of 10 can now be reserved at �50 per head.

The event will take place at the Thistle Hotel, Exeter, on July 14 and will include a three-course meal and top entertainment from comedian Ray Peacock, as well as live music and a disco.

Proceeds will benefit Live Life then Give Life, which supports organ donations.

“It will help make people aware of the massive shortage in organ donors and the harrowing statistics that you are faced with when waiting for a life-saving transplant,” said Kirstie.

“Live Life then Give Life also funds important research and equipment which improve survival rates after transplants.”
