Stacey Brookes was the life and soul of her community in Ordsall but recently she passed away from a rare form of cancer, aged just 33. Now her many friends have got together to organise a fundraising event at The Willows for the three children - ages 13, six and five – who Stacey has left behind. They want to give the children a proper family holiday together before they move on to live with separate relatives.
"Stacey was lively, outgoing, bubbly, cheeky, she loved life and was a fantastic mum" says her friend, Sue Hunter "A group of us are now trying to raise money for the children and any donations will be gratefully received."
The family event this Friday evening at The Willows will feature a disco, tombola, a fab raffle with prizes donated by local businesses, plus children's games and street dancers. The evening is all set to incorporate Stacey's love of fun.
We urge everyone to get down there and see Salford's community spirit at its finest.
