Melton fish bar chips in to help raise charity cash in Leanne’s memory

Have your say

A fish and chip shop donated one night’s takings on chips to charity in memory of a Melton teenager.

Melton’s Ocean Blue Fish Bar donated its Monday night takings - raising £475 for the Children and Young People’s Cancer Unit at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

The kind gesture was in memory of Leanne Jade McCann (19) who died in 2009 after losing her battle with small cell ovarian cancer.

Leanne’s mum, Caroline, said: “Thank you to all the staff at the shop, everyone who bought chips on the night and people for being so supportive in keeping her memory alive.”
