Eight year old, Amelia Stimpson, and her family and friends are fundraising for childhood cancer research at Amelia’s upcoming holy communion.
Following the communion, Amelia’s family and friends are hosting a fundraising party in memory of five year old, Gracie McCall. Gracie lost her battle with a rare brain tumour two years ago.
Gracie and Amelia were school friends at St Cuthbert’s Primary School. Amelia wants to use the event to remember Gracie and help raise much-needed funds for childhood cancer research in support of Friends of Rosie.
The event, which takes place towards the end of June, will be held at Whaley Range Amateur Football Club (by invitation only). The family have a whole host of activities and fundraising ideas organised including: bouncy castles, inflatable slides, garden games, face painting and lots and lots of food!
It’s sure to be a fantastic event and a very memorable day for Amelia and all her guests, as they remember Gracie and celebrate Amelia’s first communion.
Our heartfelt thanks go to Amelia’s mum, Natalie, and the whole family for choosing to support Friends of Rosie. You’ll be helping us to get more research off the ground to help children like Gracie in the future.
