Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others - By Sa­man­tha Wil­liams

A char­i­ta­ble nine-year-old girl has or­gan­ised a quiz night in mem­ory of her cousin who was still­born.

Ella Roper will host the fun evening at the Goat Lees Com­mu­nity Hall, in Trin­ity Road, Ken­ning­ton on Satur­day.

The Willes­bor­ough Ju­nior School pupil has come up with all the ques­tions her­self and has or­gan­ised a raf­fle too.

She will be helped on the night by mum Sara, dad Mark and fiveyear-old brother Daniel.

All money raised will go to The Twin­kling Stars Pro­ject, an Ash­ford char­ity which aims to open a new still­birth be­reave­ment unit at the Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal for griev­ing par­ents.

The fundraiser will con­trib­ute to Ella’s work­book for her 2nd Dan black belt in karate, a mar­tial art she has been do­ing since she was four-years-old.

Mrs Roper said: “She is grad­ing for her 2nd Dan black belt in karate.

“As part of her work book they have to do some­thing for char­ity, putting them­selves out in sit­u­a­tions that are out of their com­fort zones.

“She is run­ning the quiz her­self and has sorted all the ques­tions. She is amaz­ing and is work­ing hard on her cho­sen char­ity which is the Twin­kling Stars Pro­ject, in mem­ory of her cousin who was born asleep.”

So far, Ella has raised £250, but hopes to make it to £500.

Spa­ces are still avail­able for the quiz night, which will start at 7.30pm.

Tick­ets cost £3 a per­son, with teams of up to eight, and raf­fle tick­ets are £1 a strip.
