THE family of Aimee Sigley, who died last year from a brain tumour, have raised nearly £500 by staging a family fun day.
Aimee was just seven when she died and was looked after at the Milton children’s hospice run by by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
Her family staged the fund-raiser at the Metcalf Arms, in Hawstead, with a bouncy castle, home-made cakes, giant tombola, craft stalls and raffle supported by many businesses. The day raised £478.79.
The pupil at Sexton’s Manor Primary School lost her sight through the illness and her mum April paid tribute to the work of the hospice which offered tremendous support to the whole family.
“I don’t think many people realise what families go through and without that support families wouldn’t cope,” she said.
Aimee’s step dad Ben Pottle climbed Ben Nevis along with Steve Wood to raise money for Each and Clic Sargent.
