Money is still pouring in to help get Keighley cancer-sufferer Correena Done to Mexico for the treatment she desperately needs. Correena, 36, has been told by doctors that there is nothing more they can do for her and her only chance of life now lies in a medical centre in Tijuana, Mexico.

Friends, family and Keighley supporters have rallied round during the last few weeks to try and raise the £9,000 needed to send Correena, her husband Adrian and five-year-old daughter, Laura, on their way.

That money has now hopefully been raised but more is needed so as Correena can continue her treatment in Mexico. Correena's friend, Betty Taylor, says: "The appeal is going very well at the moment but we still need to keep going because Correena will need further treatment at the clinic.

"I would just like to thank Lisa and Rita, of The Nail & Tan Studio, East Parade, Keighley, for raising £123 through raffles, Silentnight for donating two beautiful coffee tables for auction tomorrow night and all the walkers who raised so much at the sponsored walk on Sun-day."

The specialist clinic in Tijuana offers alternative treatment for cancer and Correena is hoping that this will be the cure for her disease.

A sponsored walk which took place on Sunday from Robbo's pub to Bingley and back along the canal raised £3,500 for Correena. Around 150 people turned up for the event. Robbo's manageress Tracey Robinson, who also took part in the walk, says: "It went very well and it was a very good day had by all."

On Wednesday three members of the Keighley Cougars presented a signed rugby ball and shirt to Holy Family School. The products will be raffled to help raise funds for Correena, who also attended the presentation.

Cougars' community liaison officer Matt Foster says: "When we heard about Correena, we wanted to do something for her by coming down here today and handing over these goods. We hope the school gets as much money as possible for them for Correena."

Pupils selected to attend the presentation were Samantha Kenny, 13, who raised £116 for Correena, Damian Curran, 12, who raised £114 on a sponsored cycle, and Jenna Farkas, 12, who helped her parents bake cakes, biscuits and buns to be sold off at the school.

An up and coming Keigh-ley band put on a gig at Robbo's pub last night to help raise money for the Correena Done appeal. The Indie band, Sugarfiend, is made up of vocalist and lead guitarist Thomas Shackleton, guitarist Tom Arnold, bass guitarist Paddy Morrall and drummer Ian Atkinson.

All the boys, aged 15-17, are pupils at Keighley's Holy Family School, except Ian, who attends Oakbank School. Oakbank pupil Liam Gordon organised the concert at Robbos, Parkwood Street.

Two Ingrow youngsters completed a sponsored swim last night at the Victoria Leisure Centre, Keighley. Nicola and Jenna Meeking, of Crowmer Avenue, raised £50 in sponsorship before the event.

Nicola, 10, attends Bronte Middle School and Jenna, 7, goes to Nessfield First School.

Tomorrow night, Robbo's pub is holding a benefit night for Correena. The night will include raffles, a disco and a singer. Tickets are £3. The event will start at 7.30pm.

Marilyn and Tony Connor, of Ebor Farm, Haworth, who breed miniature horses, are collecting cash with their pets in Main Street, Haworth. In just two days, the Connors have collected £180 by taking their ponies out for exercise in Haworth's Main Street.

Mrs Connor says: "It all started by accident and then we hit on the idea of turning it into a money spinner for charity and it's going really well so far."

The Connor's hope to be out on the streets with their ponies this weekend to collect more money for Correena.

They have also organised a name-the-doll competition. Two dolls have been put in two different places - one in Robbo's pub and one in the Bront' Hotel, Lees Lane, Haworth. For £1, people can try and guess the names of the dolls, chosen by the Connors.
