A mum has denied pretending to suffer from cancer to receive pledges worth £45,000 for treatment.
Nicole Elkabbass, of Edge End Road in Broadstairs, is charged with six counts of fraud.
The 40-year-old is reported to have falsely claimed to need treatment for ovarian cancer in order to receive the cash between February and August last year.
Elkabbass, represented by Oliver Kirk, pleaded not guilty to all charges in a hearing at Canterbury Crown Court today.
Elkabbass, who wore a dark blouse was granted unconditional bail by Judge Mark Weekes.
Her trial is due to start at the same court on January 27.
