Phoebe and Ruby raise over £200 for the Lewy Body Society

We would like to say a big thank you to Phoebe and Ruby from Stakeford in Northumberland for raising money for the Lewy Body Society during our awareness week Dotty Days.

With the help of Ruby’s big sister Ellie, the girls made these beautiful coasters and sold them on a street stall, raising over £200!

The girls are fundraising in memory of their great-granda Eddie, who sadly passed away in May, at the age of 87, after living with Lewy body dementia for several years.

Ruby’s mum Helen told us:

“They’ve decided to donate all of the money earned to the Lewy Body Society in memory of their great-granda.  Organising the stall has helped keep the girls’ minds focused and has helped them through a very difficult time for our family. We are incredibly proud of them.”
