A grand community fun day in Alford to raise money for six-year-old Keira Wrenn has been deemed a success, with £2325 raised so far and much more yet to be collected.
As reported in last week’s Louth Leader (September 10), the event was organised to help fund a dream holiday for Keira, who is battling a rare and inoperable brain tumour.
It is estimated that 300 people turned up to show their support. The total sum of donations is yet to be counted.
Keira’s mother, Emma, said: “I’d like to thank everyone for organising Keira’s birthday party, Michelle Ranshaw and Tess Turner, for a fantastic day on Sunday, and to everyone who helped and made donations - it is very much appreciated.
“A big thank you also to two very special ladies, Anne Nash and Michelle Ranshaw, for being my rock and for everything they have done for me.
“Thank you to my mum and Paul for looking after Dominic and Tamzin, thanks to Sam and Donovan for looking after our pets, and to Sue Drummond for running Brownies on my behalf.”
Emma added: “Thank you to our special visitors Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Keira has loved every minute of this weekend.”
• A coffee morning will be held at 12 Charlesworth Close in Mablethorpe on Saturday (September 20) between 10am-12pm to raise more money to raise more money for Keira’s and her family.
There will be hot drinks, cakes, a tombola and raffle, guess the number of sweets in the jar, guess the teddy bear’s name, and more. All donations will be appreciated.
