Char­ity champ is brew­ing up for a good cause to cre­ate mem­o­ries

Sunderland Echo - - City Buzz -

Char­ity cham­pion Julie Reay has teamed up with a city cake shop for a spe­cial Ladies Day af­ter­noon tea.

The fundrais­ing tea will take place this Satur­day from noon un­til 3pm at Love Lily in Ma­rine Walk, Roker. Pro­ceeds from the event will go towards 4Louis, a char­ity which helps par­ents go­ing through the trauma of mis­car­riage and early in­fant deaths.

Julie, who has raised £150,000 for lo­cal causes since the death of her son Peter in a rope swing ac­ci­dent, said: “I first thought about the idea a cou­ple of months ago and de­cided Love Lily would be a fab­u­lous venue to hold this event.

“I went down to meet up with He­lena who owns this won­der­ful lit­tle cafe along with her sis­ter Gemma and I men­tioned to them that all pro­ceeds will be do­nated to 4Louis and they were de­lighted to help such a wor­thy cause.”

4Louis pro­vides mem­ory boxes to hos­pi­tals across the coun­try.
