Liz FarrEven after her death, Dunstable's brave cancer victim Liz Farr is still making a difference.

An auction of her 'posh frocks' on Saturday will raise money for the Iain Rennie Hospice in Tring.

Liz's devoted husband Clive Bevins - whom she married three days before she died - is organising the event.

He said: "It is now more than four months since I lost my Liz and I am still so grateful to the Iain Rennie Hospice at Home team who nursed her through her last weeks.

"She was surrounded by family and friends and the centre of attention to her last breath."

Donations at her funeral amounted to £320 but now Clive, 64, would like to do even more to help the hospice.

He said: "Liz was a lady who lover to shop.

"Her family have selected what they wanted from her five double wardobes but there is still lots of good quality stuff, including a dozen 'posh frocks', winter coats, suits, jackets and blouses as well as scarves, handbags, shoes and costume jewellery.

"There will be a guide price which you're welcome to exceed.

"And anything not sold by 5pm will go under the hammer of well-known auctioneer Mike O'Sullivan."

Liz's courageous battle with cancer was really well documented.

Shortly before she died she starred in Making a Song and Dance about Cancer, a film about her inspirational and uplifting journey.

Clive asked her to marry him on stage at the premiere in Berkhamsted.

Prior to that the 55-year-old Eaton Bray mum wrote and recorded The Thank You Song as a tribute to the family and friends who had supported her during her long ordeal.
