Heart Warming Story
On the day of the cricket match and summer party one moment in particular touched Katie's family.
The nine year old daughter of one of Katie's Dad's neighbours had a lovely surprise for us....
Nine year old Amy Baker who arrived at the game with her Mum and Dad and her 11 year old brother Charlie handed over to Katie's Dad a bundle of money for the two charities.
Nick assumed this was a donation from the family but then Amy's Mum explained that Amy had taken it upon herself to organise a driveway sale at her parent's house the day before the cricket and the bundle of coins and notes were what she had raised.
For someone who had probably never met Katie this was a lovely gesture that Katie herself would have loved and appreciated beyond words.
It goes to prove that although we talk in hard cash about what we raised on the day there are some lovely stories behind the money and that the day means a lot to so many different people in so many different ways.
Thanks Amy x
