Lady Elsie and Andrew Robson thoroughly enjoyed meeting our wonderful supporters yesterday – including some of our youngest fund-raisers.

14-month-old Owen Richardson, from Hebburn, raised over £500 to support our work when his family requested donations in memory of a family friend instead of gifts when he was christened.

And Lady Elsie and Andrew were also very glad to meet 10-year-old Kathleen Ann Sherlock-Britton, from Darlington, who raised an amazing £320 by baking cakes.

Kathleen Ann wanted to do something to help us after losing her Auntie to cancer in January.

Our thanks to Owen and Kathleen Ann, and their families – and all the fund-raisers kind enough to join us for a coffee.

A lovely morning!
