Ella Butler-Creagh from Peppard has set herself the goal to raise money for Sue Ryder. Eleven year old Ella, who was home schooled until recently, and now attends Stoke Row Primary was aware of how fortunate she was, ‘I always thought I was quite lucky to have a big garden.’ It was from this she decided her New Year’s Resolution would be to raise as much money as possible for those less fortunate than her.
Ella’s first big event was a bake off held at The Unicorn pub in Kingwood Common. She designed and handed out flyers at school and around the village. Ella and the owner of The Unicorn were judges and got to taste all the cakes.
We asked Ella how much she had raised and whether she intended to continue fundraising; she said, ‘I was really pleased to raise £114 and I am planning an Easter themed event in Henley.’ Ella went on to say, ‘It is a lot of fun and I am happy knowing that all the money is going to a good cause’.
We will be attending Ella’s next fundraising event and will keep you updated.
