She hit the headlines when she was just five years old after contracting hepatitis A during an outbreak at St William’s RC Primary School in Ince and underwent a liver transplant.

She recovered well, but had suffered other health problems in the past 18 months and she died on Monday, January 23.

The fund-raiser was held to support the children’s ward at St James’ Hospital in Leeds, where she was treated as a youngster. There was a cake stall, tombola, raffles, auction, bucking bronco, bouncy castle and host of other attractions.
