The Eve Merton Dreams Trust cancer charity organised a dream wedding for Jackie and Jim after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was told that she only had weeks left.
The Trust's dedication to helping Doncaster's cancer sufferers and their families was amazing and with the help of Minster Law solicitors they were treated to the day that such as lovely couple deserved.
The wedding was a civil ceremony held at Doncaster Rovers' Keepmoat Stadium and had car, flowers, cake, food, decorations, dress all organised through the help of local businesses. Being part of this families day was very emotional and reminds me why I got involved with being a member of the Trust's team as this event meant so much to everyone. Personally delivering the newlyweds their wedding album along with one of the charity's founders, Clynton Johnson, around 2 weeks after the wedding they were so grateful and you could see we had really made a difference.
Sadly, Jackie has since passed away. I hope that the memories we helped to create will be remembered by everyone for many years.
