Girls' tribute to grandma Dot
10:00am Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
TWO sisters have raised hundreds of pounds in memory of their grandmother by holding a coffee morning.
Queen Katherine School pupils Ellie and Megan Shepherd baked cakes and won support from numerous local companies for the event held at Hallgarth Community Centre in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The pair from Kendal, raised £411 for the charity, after Megan, 13, decided to celebrate the life of her nana Dot who passed away last year.
Friends and family turned out in force to eat cake and raise money.
Local businesses donated raffle prizes including a £100 carpet cleaning voucher from Smart Cleaners, a meal voucher for The Punch Bowl and Kendal Goldsmiths earring vouchers. Morrisons, Asda and Booths also donated tea, coffee and biscuits for the occasion.
Their mum Leanne Shepherd said the day ‘was absolutely brilliant’.
“There was a great turn out for us and the girls had so much support from local businesses for the raffle. The prizes were fantastic,” said Mrs Shepherd.
