Donna Louise Children’s Hospice
I have organised four 24-hour pool marathons in aid of the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice. My friends, Sentinel colleagues and I have raised in excess of £5,000 for the charity’s Treetops hospice at Trentham Lakes, Stoke-on-Trent.
I co-hosted a variety show in aid of the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice at the Mitchell Arts Centre in Hanley with BBC Radio Stoke presenter Denholm Siegertz. We had some phenomenally-talented local acts on the line-up and the event raised more than £2,000 for the Treetops hospice.
Cheetham’s Children’s Ward
My friends and I organised a ghost-hunt at Burslem’s historic Leopard pub which raised around £1,000 for the Cheetham’s Children’s Ward at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire.
I organised a Halloween disco for pupils at my daughters’ school which raised £250 for armed forces charity Help For Heroes. My friends and I will be staging a 24-hour pool marathon for this very worthy cause. Sponsorship details coming soon…
I raised more than £400 by growing a ridiculous, sponsored ‘Movember’ moustache in aid of three-year-old Frankie Allen, of Burslem, who is battling leukaemia. Please follow her battle through The Sentinel or online via the Frankie’s Fight Twitter and Facebook pages.
Current charity work…
This year I was MC for the Operation Spitfire fund-raising dinner to raise money to preserve and enhance Stoke-on-Trent’s Spitfire – RW388 – at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Hanley. I will also be the compere again for the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Ball (July 5) and the Douglas Macmillan Hospice Ball (October 3).
