The legendary Michelle Herbert, who played Grange Hill’s original rebel, Trisha Yates, recently opened up to The Daily Mirror about her fight against breast cancer. During the interview Michelle revealed how she was fortunate enough to spot unexpected symptoms early, and after surgery has now been given the all-clear. You can read the feature in the Mirror here.
As regular GHG readers will already know, Michelle’s daughter, Chloe, has been fundraising for Breast Cancer Care by taking part in a 5K run in Manchester, a 10k run in Glasgow and finally a skydive during September and October. Describing herself as ‘the least energetic person in the entire world’, Chloe’s challenge has inspired numerous donations. Her original target was £500, but since then Chloe has raised over £3000! You can support Chloe’s fundraising efforts here at her JustGiving page.
Grange Hill Gold wishes Chloe every success with her fundraising and is delighted to hear that Michelle’s news.
