SISTERLY love was the driving force behind a fun day aiming to raise money to support the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, which was held in Stapenhill at the weekend.
The event was organised by 13-year-old Chloe Evans and was inspired by her eight-year-old Luke Gower, who has been suffering with muscular dystrophy for the past two years.
It is one of a number of fund-raising activities planned by the teenager, who is hoping to raise £10,000 over the next three years to support people in the same boat as her little brother.
She has now taken the first step towards her goal, as the event, on Saturday, managed to raise a grand total of £183.40.
There was a ‘steady’ stream of visitors throughout the day, many of whom visited the Bluebell Bakery and Truly Scrumptious stalls, which were selling sweet treats for those supporting the cause.
It was the first event which Chloe had organised, with the help of her mum Michelle Gower, and she is already planning the next two.
Mrs Gower, of Baker Street, Stapenhill, said: “I’ve very proud of her.”
