‘The Grand Day Out’ is a fundraising event to celebrate the life of Ceri Palmer Howells, a young lady who was a former Wistaston Rose Queen and active member of the local community. Ceri died suddenly in March 2014 at the young age of 22 years from sudden arrhythmic death syndrome S.A.D.S. This is a little known condition that causes at least 12 young people to die every week in the UK. Ceri's family are keen to support the work of Cardiac Risk in the Young – CRY www.c-r-y.org.uk , a charity that funds research into the condition and helps support bereaved families.
‘The Grand Day Out’ takes place on Saturday 28th March 2015 between 10.30am and 5pm at St. Mary’s Church Hall, Church Lane, Wistaston, Cheshire CW2 8HA. The day will feature a pamper zone, craft zone, cake paradise, music, stalls, a grand prize draw and a chance to learn more about the vital work of CRY in saving young lives.
Tickets are £5, which includes entrance to the event and a cream tea or savoury option. Tickets are available in advance from St Mary's Church Office, 01270 567119, email@example.com, Ceri's website: www.ceriabigail.org.uk or direct from Robert and Alison Howells on 01270 569327.
