Six year old Nerea, who is undergoing treatment for leukaemia, and her co-host Jacqui French chose to raise money through a BBQ party in Jacqui’s garden. The party had live music by a local band The Basis and local singer Harry Dolan.
Nerea and Jacqui had sent out a number of invites and were delighted when their BBQ was attended by Councillor Jane Boulton, Dr Tanias Mathias MP, Kim Ismay and dozens of other local friends and family.
They raised an incredible £5,000 through ticket sales, a raffle and an auction.
“We have known Nerea since she was born and are very close friends with her family. Of course when we found out Nerea was ill with leukaemia we wanted to do what we could to help. Momentum have supported the family throughout so together with Nerea we decided to have a fundraising BBQ. We couldn’t believe it when the Mayor and MP said yes to our invite! Nerea was so excited. I think all six-year-old girls like a party!” Jacqui French
