Founders of Irthlingborough charity, Chelsea’s Angels, took part in a rally in London to raise awareness of the need for more funding for childhood cancer treatments.

The charity supports children with rare forms of cancer and their families.

Chelsea’s cousin Michelle Tomkins said: “We felt it was important to attend because it’s two-and-a-half years since Chelsea passed away and this is still happening. Chelsea’s parents wanted to attend for Chelsea to pay tribute to her and fight for other children. “Families should not have to be raising in excess of £300,000 for treatment in other countries.

”We live every day angry and sad that Chelsea lost her battle because we couldn’t raise the money in time. Children don’t have the time to wait around while money is being raised.”
