It was great to meet Cheryle Hollis today at Rotherham General Hospital. Cheryle has been fundraising for 4Louis and the Purple Butterfly Suite at RGH after her grandson Ollie- Ray Taylor-Clark, was born sleeping on October 29th 2016.
Cheryle has raised more than £600 with the help of her colleagues at One Stop in East Herringthorpe and Badsley Moor. She presented a cheque to the hospital today with Ollie- Ray's parents Samantha Taylor and Simon Clark. £300 will go the Purple Butterfly Fund and £320 has been donated to 4Louis.
Cheryle has more fundraising planned in the future. Thank you again Cheryle and her family friends and colleagues for supporting 4Louis

Thank you to Kate Sorahan Turner who managed to raise a huge £6500 in memory of little Harrison. This was achieved with the great support of the theatre goers at the Gala Theatre Durham. Collection tubs were made available at the Christmas Pantomime and the Phantom of The Opera. We are so very grateful for your kind support.
