A special party was thrown by a charity to mark the 90th birthdays of a trio of ladies, who have all survived cancer.

Sidmouth Living With Cancer staged the event to celebrate the milestones of its memebers Joan Petts, Joyce Blackwell and Maureen Woodley.

The ladies were treated to an old-fashioned sing-song and a buffet tea and birthday cake.

Bill Lankester, from Sidmouth Living With Cancer, said: “All have survived from cancer for many years.

“They are all an example of how to enjoy life to the fullest.”
