THE latest recipient of The Mail’s Bouquet of the Week is an “inspirational” woman who has not let cancer get in the way of her amazing charity fundraising efforts.

Diana Sullivan was nominated for the flowers by the owner of a Barrow cafe where she meets regularly for a Saturday group.

Lisa Clark, the co-owner of the Coffee Bean cafe in Dalton Road, praised her customer for her fundraising.

She said she put Diane forward for the honour for her phenomenal work fundraising for various charities.
