2:10pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
A TALENT show raised more than £2,000 for the Lullaby Trust.
Friends and relatives of Lucy-May Hudson, a little girl who died in her sleep aged three, organised the show in her memory.
Eight acts entertained the crowd at Lowton Social Club on Saturday night and a raffle raised £1,000 of the £2,037.37 total.
Val Mills, Lucy-May’s grandmother, said: “The talent show was brilliant. We had a great time and a fantastic amount was raised.
“I’m so made up with how things went and I am overwhelmed with people’s generosity for such a great cause. A big thanks to all our fundraising helpers and Nicky Wells, as this wouldn’t have happened without her support.”
Use of the social club was provided for free for the event, while the raffle saw a Wigan rugby shirt, signed Manchester United ball and Haydock Park race tickets given away.
The Lullaby Trust supports bereaved parents and the relatives of Lucy-May have raised more than £3,000 for the charity since she died in August 2012.
