Hinckley Times - - LETTERS - NI­CHOLAS DAW­SON ni­cholas.daw­son@trin­i­tymir­

A YOUNG mum is or­gan­is­ing a char­ity event in Hinck­ley to sup­port her daugh­ter’s bat­tle with cancer.

Katy Jones, from Stoney Stan­ton, is rais­ing funds for the chil­dren’s cancer treat­ment ward at Le­ices­ter Royal In­fir­mary, with a day of events at TKT Cheer­lead­ing, in Teal Busi­ness Cen­tre.

Her three-year-old daugh­ter, Eden, is cur­rently be­ing treated at the hos­pi­tal, af­ter she was di­ag­nosed with acute lym­phoblas­tic leukaemia in July.

Katy said: “The ward have a very long list of wishes and wants so we are hop­ing that the money we raise can be used to im­prove the fa­cil­i­ties and pro­vide the com­forts that ev­ery child stay­ing there craves.”

Vis­i­tors to the event can try out TKT’s tram­po­line and air track, with coaches on hand to teach a few rou­tines.

There will be a raf­fle, teddy bear tombola, cheer rou­tines and a chance to guess how many smar­ties there are in a gi­ant cookie.

You can also get a photo with princesses Belle and Ariel, and Ariel may be do­ing a few songs.

Eden’s cousin, four-year-old Immy, is hav­ing her waistlength red hair cut off at the event, in aid of the Lit­tle Princess Trust.

A sweetie stall and a partylite stall will also be there, along with face­paint­ing, glit­ter tat­toos and nail pol­ish sta­tions.

Each event will have a small charge, with all pro­ceeds going to­wards the Le­ices­ter Hos­pi­tals Char­ity.

Raf­fle tick­ets can be pur­chased in ad­vance as well as on the day.

Prizes in­clude signed Le­ices­ter Tigers shirts, a meal for two at The Blue Bell in Stoney Stan­ton, and a Tri­umph goody bag.

If you want to do­nate a prize to the raf­fle, mes­sage Kate Jay, Katy’s Face­book pro­file.

You can also do­nate to the cause on Eden’s Just Giv­ing page, a crowd­funded page mean­ing all the money goes to­wards the ward.

Check the Eden’s Char­ity Fundraiser Face­book page for more de­tails, which Katy will be up­dat­ing with raf­fle prizes and more in­for­ma­tion in the build up to the day.

The event is hap­pen­ing on Septem­ber 30, from 1pm to 4pm.

En­try is £1 per per­son, with chil­dren un­der 12 going free, un­less they are a TKT cheer­leader, who have to pay an en­try fee.
