CAMPAIGNERS vying to raise £50,000 to send Katy Dawson to Germany so she can receive specialist treatment for the rare form of breast cancer are holding a coffee morning to boost the coffers.
We reported on our front page last week how the group of mums and dads were rallying round to raise the cash to help 36-year-old Katy from Cofton Hackett. The drive has raised £23,000 in just 20 days.
The coffee morning , organised by 20 parents from Lickey Hills Primary School, will take place from 9am to midday next Friday (July 22) at the Trinity Centre in Lickey. They are hoping to see at least £500 collected at the event, which is open to all pupils and parents connected to Lickey Hills School and anyone else who wants to go along.
Many of them will be arriving with cakes, brownies, biscotti and scones, while Happy Feet in Rubery will contribute soft play equipment to entertain the children.
Dads Peter Dancer and Craig Wood have also helped by designing flyers, posters, banners and donation boxes.
Mums involved with the organisation of the coffee morning include Jill Boeckx, Lisa Dancer, Tara Bloom, Lucy Gibbons and Karen Wood.
