The Kirsty Lawton Trust Fund has made an incredible donation of £10,000 to UHNM Charity towards the care and experience of cystic fibrosis patients at Royal Stoke.
The fund was set up a decade ago by David and Gail Lawton in memory of daughter Kirsty who received treatment for the condition at UHNM before sadly passing away at the age of 16.
Gail said: “We wanted to do something to keep Kirsty’s name alive and make sure people don’t forget her. In the beginning we’d raise money every year through things like tuck shops at work. Around eight years ago we started to do charity night events at Silverdale Working Men’s Club where we would sell tickets and have a band, DJ , buffet and raffle.”
“Unfortunately last year we were unable to hold a fundraising event but this year’s event raised over £5,000 on the night.”
“It means a lot to know that UHNM Charity can purchase items she didn’t have whilst she was a patient. We needed to do something to help out, and is nice to say that Kirsty did something to help patients going through cystic fibrosis which is a horrible thing."
