Gabriella fundraises in memory of her friend

Schoolgirl fundraises for friend

Gabriella Ellingham 16 July 2018

Gabriella Ellingham from Orton Longueville came to Peterborough City Hospital recently to hand over a cheque to the Play Team on Amazon ward.

Her friend sadly passed away at Christmas and she and some of her friends held a bake sale at their school, Nene Park Academy, to raise money for the ward where he spent a lot of time.

The play team were thrilled to meet Gabriella, as her name came up often when talking with her friend, and it was good to finally see the friend he talked about.

The play team said: “Gabriella and her friends have done so well raising £200 by having a bake sale. We are very grateful to them all, and we will put it towards something that her friend liked to do.”
