Vicky’s fundraising in memory of mother
Vicky Pringle from Amble, is fundraising for St Oswald’s in memory of her mam, Nicola. Nicola benefitted from care on St Oswald’s Inpatient unit before she died from cancer in October 2011, aged 48.
Vicky said “Mam was only there for 10 days but the care she was given was wonderful. I started fundraising so that I could give something back for the kindness and care my mam received. I am taking part in St Oswald’s Icelandic Trek in October 2014 and I have already exceeded my fundraising target of £3,000, so anything extra I raise for the Hospice now is a bonus! I am really looking forward to the Iceland Trek, an incredible challenge.”
An event at the Masons Arms in Amble will be held on Sunday 17th August, begining 1pm. Including raffles, games, refreshments and live music from 3pm. Local artist Jimmy Thompson has donated a painting to auction; local businesses have donated raffle prizes.
There will be a BBQ and teas, coffees, sandwiches and cakes to buy. Entry is free but donations are encouraged.
