Cancer torchbearer Maxine Foulds given free wedding venue


A woman with terminal cancer has married her long-term partner at a ceremony hosted free of charge at a Derbyshire wedding venue.

Maxine Foulds, 35, from Alvaston, Derby, was chosen to run a leg of the Olympic torch relay earlier this year in recognition of her charity fundraising.

Her story moved bosses at Shottle Hall, part of the Chatsworth Estate, to offer their venue for nothing to allow her to tie the knot with fiance Ben Smith-Foulds on Saturday.
