Cancelled wedding becomes ideal tea party for charity

Kim Grace was due to get married on Saturday 5th May at the prestigious Carlton Towers. However, following the cancellation of her wedding, Kim made the generous decision to donate the venue to The Sick Children’s Trust so that the charity can launch its Big Chocolate Tea campaign with an exquisite Afternoon Tea. The event is to be held in memory of six year old Kayleigh Logg, whose family were supported by the charity while fighting cancer.

In 2010, Kayleigh, from Castleford, was diagnosed with leukaemia and required specialist care at Leeds Children’s Hospital. For a year, Kayleigh was in and out of the hospital undergoing intense chemotherapy treatment and later a bone marrow transplant. Sadly, despite her brave fight, Kayleigh passed away in November 2011. During her time at Leeds Children’s Hospital, The Sick Children’s Trust supported Kayleigh’s parents Nicola and Paul, alongside sister Lorna, with free ‘Home from Home’ accommodation at its Eckersley House, just minutes from Kayleigh’s hospital bedside.

On Saturday 5th May, Carlton Towers will open its doors to supporters of The Sick Children’s Trust for an exclusive Afternoon Tea event to raise money to support more families like Kayleigh’s when their child is seriously ill in hospital.

Tickets to Afternoon Tea at Carlton Towers cost £20 and guests can expect a great time filled with cakes, sandwiches and a glass of fizz! To buy tickets and find out more about The Sick Children’s Trust, please visit the charity’s website.
