SALFORD GIRL RAISES HUNDREDS OF POUNDS FOR ST ANN’S HOSPICE
 

Star date: 28th October 2012

KELSIE FUNDRAISES IN AUNT'S MEMORY

Kelsie Thomas, an 11 year old girl from Langworthy, today raised hundreds of pounds for St Ann's Hospice with a fun filled event at the Royal British Legion that she'd spent all summer organising.

Kelsie got local businesses to donate raffle and auction items, including tickets for Man City matches, signed footballs and beauty treatments.

Full story here…


At 1pm this afternoon the Royal British Legion on Langworthy Road was already packed. Kids were on the stage playing games, raffle tickets were being sold and auction items were lined up for later in the day. To say this fundraiser was a great success would be an understatement. But what's more amazing is that the whole event was staged and organised by an 11 year old girl.

Kelsie Thomas, a pupil at Buile Hill Visual Arts College, wanted to do something to commemorate her auntie, who died from cancer, age just 29, five years ago.

"I wanted to raise money for people who had cancer and chose St Ann's Hospice because that's where my auntie was when she died" said Kelsie "I started organising this a few months ago and e-mailed all the businesses asking for donations for the raffle. We got meal vouchers, manicures, City tickets and signed footballs. Then I had to sort out a room and a DJ and everything and then try to sell all the tickets."

The tickets totally sold out before the event, which included karaoke, a disco and fun games, as well as the raffle and auction. By the end of the day, Kelsie was hoping to raise around £800 for St Ann's Hospice.

"I think she's done really well considering she's only 11, and she spent her whole six week holiday arranging all this instead of going out with her friends" said her proud mum Kellie Dwan "The turnout is brilliant – they'll get her to arrange everything around here now!"
