Fundraising events are being held to help two Corby sisters whose mum was found dead in woodlands in France last year.

Agnes Rooney, of Dorking Walk, Corby, went missing on the way home from a holiday in Bulgaria and her body was discovered near Rouen.

Her daughters Jeanette, of Stamford, and Anne-Marie, who lives in Corby, still don’t know how their mum died and have been unable to bring their her body home to Corby.

Jeanette said: “I now have a lawyer I’ve instructed in France which is great.”

A fun day is being held at The Candle pub, Corby, on Monday and a benefit dance is being held at the Labour Club, Stuart Road, on May 2.
