A fundraiser for a cancer centre in Nottingham has admitted theft and fraud totalling £11,500.

Emma Critchley, 36, from Sherwood Dene, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, formerly worked for Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres.

At Nottingham Crown Court she admitted stealing £8,017 from East Titchfield Neighbourhood Management Team.

She also pleaded guilty to fraud by false representation in relation to an altered cheque for £3,500, originally payable to the cancer charity.

She was bailed ahead of her sentencing which will take place at the same court on 17 June.

Critchley helped the organisation reach the £500,000 funding target to build the first Maggie's cancer centre in Nottingham.
