Following our Hope for Emily charity afternoon on Sunday August 23 at Broadbridge Heath Scout Hut we are pleased to announce we raised a reasonable amount of £412.

Considering it was my first charity event that I’d organised myself... I feel it went well!

I would like to say a big thank you to all the stall holders and especially those who donated raffle prizes. These people include: Kelly’s Ironing Service, Twinkle Twinkle Photography, Kings Barbers Horsham, LJ’s dog walking, Goodtime Discos, Scarlett Lily Flowers, Barnetts Barbers, Flippers N Fins, The Foot Lady, The Iron Bridge Flower Shop, diamond dogs, Little Beans Soft Play and Bouncy Castle Hire and lotmore. A massive thank you also has to be said to Lorraine Ede (my mum) who has been amazing. Also John, Jemma, Kerry, Charley, Clare, Emma, Harry & Cerys that helped behind the scenes. We are happy to be able to tell you all that the money raised will hopefully be going towards either a hydro pool for Emily to do her physio exercises or towards a therapy trike.

Emily Milner, who lives in Horsham, suffered brain damage during her traumatic premature birth and has since been diagnosed with Periventricular Leukamalacia and cerebral palsy affecting all four limbs.

I hope the afternoon was enjoyed by many and I hope to do another event soon. It was lovely to meet Emily and her family to give her the cheque.
