The cherished memory of a Scarborough woman will be honoured at a fundraising event in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice.

Karen Sadler, who had lung cancer, passed away earlier this year - just 11 weeks after her diagnosis in December.

Her family are now hoping to raise funds for the hospice in thanks for the “amazing” care she received towards the end of her life.

Karen’s daughter Anne Marie has organised a Summer Fair, which will be held this Saturday from 1pm to 4pm at St Mary’s Parish House in Castle Road, the home of the Rainbow Centre.

Admission is free and attractions include a tombola, face painting, refreshments, a bottle stall, auction, children’s games and stalls selling cakes, preserves and plants.

Karen’s sisters, Trish and Sandra, are also hoping to raise awareness of the hospice and its good work.

Trish said: “We want people to know it’s a wonderful place and that going there is nothing to be scared of.

“Karen was so frightened about going there, but after just one day she knew she was in the best place.

“She died at home, but she was so happy she’d gone in. The care and attention she received was just amazing.”

Karen’s daughter Anne Marie is also planning to work with the Roy Castle Trust to raise awareness of lung cancer.
