A WINYATES couple will host a charity fun day to raise money for the hospital which cared for their daughter.
Michelle and Wayne Southall will be hosting the event on Saturday, October 19, at the Duck Inn on Pheasant Lane, to raise funds for Birmingham Children's Hospital which cared for 12-year-old Lucie who passed away from leukaemia.
The event will run from 12pm until 4pm and will include a creepy crawly man who will have a variety of interesting insects, a professional face painter, a book stall and tombolas.
Raffle tickets will be on sale, while snacks including candy floss, popcorn and pork baps will also be available.
The couple have raised over £2,000 so far through selling raffle tickets, a car boot hosted by friends and donations from the public.
All of the money will go towards the £4 million refurbishment of Ward 15 where Lucie was cared for, as well as the paediatric intensive care unit and CLIC Sargent - a charity which provides clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help young people with cancer and their families get the most out of life.
Part of the funds will also go towards the Ronald McDonald House Birmingham which provides free accommodation and support to families with sick children being treated at the hospital.
A special auction is planned for January and residents and businesses are urged to donate items.
