A mother and daughter duo are on a mission to raise over £2,000 for charity with a host of fundraising events over the next few months in Tameside.

Rebecca Bradbury and her Mum Trina, from Dukinfield, are raising money in aid of Well Child.

The charity hopes to provide every young person with serious health needs the opportunity to be cared for at home whenever possible, get them involved in all decisions regarding their care and have access to high quality, appropriate services.

Rebecca, who works as a teaching assistant says that both of their lines of work have shown them how vital these services are.

She said: “We both work with children, my Mum is a child-minder so we have seen the effects of children with illness and special needs first hand – we see the impact it has on them and their families.”

Last year they raised just under £2,000 for PHAB Kids, another charity that aims to help children with special needs and disabilities.

Rebecca added; “Well Child is an amazing charity that helps so many people, not just the children with the illness but the families and friends of the children, the nurses that build relationships and build strong bonds with the children.

“Well Child enables children to live at home where they belong with all the facilities that they need to live life to the max, instead of living in hospitals or in residential care away from their parents.

We have three events planned at the minute and I am in the middle of planning the fourth.”

The events so far include a Christmas Fair at Curzon Ashton FC this Sunday on the 25rd November from 11am to 3pm, a “Brunch with Santa” at the Together Centre in Dukinfield on the 2nd December from 10am to 1pm and a Casino Night at Stalybridge Labour Club from 7:30pm to midnight on the 18th of May next year.

Trina is also planning to run the 2019 London Marathon.
