A BRAVE Ballyclare woman who has twice survived breast cancer has handed over a cheque for £1,600 to Cancer Research UK.

Ann Tweed, who has raised thousands of pounds for the charity over the past few years, handed over the proceeds of her latest fundraising efforts to Cancer Research UK’s Area Volunteer Manager, Sarah Davis, last week.

The 51-year-old from Woodland Rise was first diagnosed with breast cancer 15 years ago, having to undergo further treatment for the condition again seven years later. Thankfully Ann made a full recovery and has been clear of cancer for the past eight years.
