You constantly amaze us. We always love seeing your fundraising pages and reading your stories, and every now and again one jumps out as so inspiring we have to tell you about it.
She’s managed to raise a stunning £71,117 so far for her charity, When You Wish Upon A Star, and we hope the total keeps growing. We’re proud to have her as September’s fundraiser of the month.
Kirsty’s been nominated by her mum, Julie Ashton, who says:
“I would like to nominate Kirsty Ashton as your September fundraiser of the month because:
Kirsty suffers from Neurofibromatosis and Scoliosis and has over 100 tumours just on her spine, has numerous other internal tumours in her knees, tummy hip, pelvis and lung, is in constant pain and attends hospital weekly, yet she’s managed to raise over £70,000 by having 2 charity balls and a number of other events. She has her own web page, which she runs to helps others with the same condition (www.kirstysstory.co.uk). Kirsty is sending 100 terminally ill children off to visit Santa in Lapland in December this year.”
Congratulations Kirsty! We hope our donation on your fundraising page encourages anyone who can to help you get closer to your target.
