Lucy Pickernell has news of a poignant fund-raising event she’s organised for this Sunday (March 1st), in memory of her lovely daughter Maisie who passed away 5 years ago.
She’s organised a sponsored colouring event for local children and their families to attend, to be held at the White Horse Community Centre, Leigh Park, Westbury at 2pm.
“We will be raising money for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Bristol Children’s Hospital. The PICU looked after Maisie for 9 days where she received fantastic care from all of the staff involved in her treatment. Due to a genetic condition that could not be treated, Maisie passed away peacefully aged 9 weeks and 4 days.
Bristol Children’s Hospital provides world-class care to babies and children from Bristol, the South West of England, and in some cases the whole of the UK and overseas. We want to continue supporting the hospital in Maisie’s memory, in recognition of the fantastic care they provided for her.
If you are able to support us in raising money for the hospital, then please do so by joining in with our sponsored draw/colouring in. After the event all of the pictures will be presented to the children’s hospital, and will hopefully brighten up somebody’s day.”
Everyone is invited to draw for a specified time. The theme for the day is ‘Easter’ with older children invited to draw freehand, and little ones colouring in prepared templates.
“The Consortium have very kindly sponsored this event by donating pens, pencils, paper and lots of raffle prizes, and a number of staff and their children have already agreed to take part. The under 5s will be drawing or colouring in for half an hour, and the over 5s for 1 hour.
Whilst this is taking place there will be hot and cold drinks and lots of yummy cakes and biscuits for you to buy, along with tickets for our great raffle. If you are not taking part on the day please feel free to come and join us for coffee and a cake!”
For more information on how you can show your support please contact Lucy at The Consortium.
Lucy, we wish you well for Sunday and we look forward to seeing the results from the day and when they’re proudly on display at the PICU.
