Eleven year-old Ellie has raised a fabulous £260 for Willen Hospice by giving up sweet treats for the whole of October.
It all started when she heard that her parents were taking part in Stoptober to fundraise, and she wanted to play her part too.
Ellie's family and friends sponsored her and she managed to shun sweets, chocolates and fizzy drinks for a month, even staying strong during Halloween!
On one occasion while they were eating out, her parents, forgetting momentarily about her challenge, bought her a lemonade which she refused! Although she didn’t tackle the challenge for health reasons she feels a lot healthier as a result of her Stoptober efforts.
Well done Ellie, and a huge thank you from all at Willen Hospice! By raising funds for us, you are helping towards paying for our doctors, nurses, food and heating to support our very ill patients.
