A MUM whose daughter died from a brain tumour aged 13 is raising cash for the hospice where she spent her last days.

Jane Knight, of Beighton, is organising two events in memory of Emma in aid of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in North Anston.

The 43-year-old, now a carer at Bluebell Wood, has already raised more than £10,000 for the hospice and hopes to raise even more through a Motown night and Santa dash.

Emma was diagnosed with a non-malignant brain tumour in 2004 and died four years later.

The youngster, who went blind and was unable to walk towards the latter stages of her life, was the first child to use Bluebell Wood when it opened its doors in 2008.

The hospice supports children who have life-limiting conditions and are not expected to live into adulthood.

The Motown evening is at Beighton Welfare Recreational Ground on Saturday, November 24.

The Santa dash takes place , at the same venue, on Sunday, December 9.

Jane said: “We’re hoping to sell lots of tickets to help us raise as much money as possible.

“The support we’ve received at events in the past has been tremendous and we’re grateful to everyone for helping us keep Emma’s memory alive.”

n Tickets for the events are available from Steve Knight on 07552 150331.
