The daughter of a lady cared for by the Douglas Macmillan Hospice, is holding a fundraising day in her memory.
Jane Roden was cared for at the Hospice, before passing away two years ago.
Now her daughter Olivia, aged 15, is hosting a fundraiser at Mount Pleasant Farm, Werrington on Sunday August 26th between 12pm and 4pm, to thank the Dougie Mac for the care she received.
Activities on the day include a bouncing castle, face painting, and a barbeque. The entry fee will be £1, with children under 12 years of age free.
The day before, Olivia is also having a ‘sweet sixteen’ Only Way Is Essex themed birthday party, with donations going to the Hospice.
She is no stranger to fundraising, having raised £500 by taking part in the Dougie Mac’s Midnight to Sunrise Walk in June.
Although Olivia has set no targets for the day itself, she is hoping the local community will support her venture.
“We had already planned an ‘Essex’ themed party for my birthday, and thought we would make the most of it to honour my mum,” Olivia said.
“I’ve done other fundraising events like the Midnight to Sunrise Walk, but the whole family thought it would be a great way of honouring my mum’s memory and thanking Dougie Mac for the care she received, by organising our own fundraising event.
“My family and friends have been extremely supportive in helping me plan the day, and we are just hoping for a good turnout on the day.”
