Three sisters are celebrating a successful charity dinner and dance evening in London Colney.

Jennifer Roper-Murray, Elaine Hilton and Gloria Jordan collected more than £2,000 for Prostate Cancer UK at a fundraising Dinner and Dance at the St Albans Irish Association in London Colney.

It is a cause close to their hearts because their father, Cyril Roper, was diagnosed in 2016. He is currently receiving radiotherapy treatment at Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood.

At the event, he spoke about his own experience and the importance of an annual check-up.

Prostate Cancer UK ambassador Errol McKellar, of The Errol McKellar Foundation, also attended the evening.
