An Earby woman who was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour five weeks ago renewed her wedding vows on Saturday.

And on what was an emotional day at All Saints Church, Lisa and Scott Cooney also had their youngest child, James (five), christened by the vicar, the Rev. Hugh Fielden.

The couple, of Wentcliffe Drive, were originally married at All Saints 17 years ago and have a daughter Neve (10). Following her diagnosis, Mrs Cooney (38), who works in the offices of a Keighley construction company, has to make daily trips to St James’s Hospital in Leeds for treatment. Saturday’s renewal service was followed by a reception for family and friends at Earby Conservative Club, which saw local business The Village Bakery, of Water Street, provide the catering free of charge – a gesture which was very much appreciated by Mrs Cooney and her family.

Her mother, Mrs Grace Higgins, said: “We thought it was fantastic.

“The bakery is only a small business and we felt for them to do that for us and not charge us was really nice.

“We would like to say thank you to them for what they did.

“We are all very grateful.”
