Love Leah Appeal Raises 2k For Liverpool Hospital

NEARLY 30 cyclists completed a fundraising bike ride to Liverpool’s brain and spine hospital The Walton Centre. The group rode from Salford Royal hospital to The Walton Centre in memory of Lowton teenager Leah Davies. This is the fourth time they have held the annual fundraising event as part of the Love Leah Appeal which raises money in her name. This year the event raised over £2,000, which brings the total raised by Leah’s family and friends to over £60,000. Leah’s father Andy Davies said: “Our family take real comfort in the fact that a difference is being made in Leah’s name. It’s testament to the fabulous people who year after year have supported us by not only donating money, but also their time – we cannot thank them enough”. Head of Fundraising Madeleine Fletcher said: “We’re immensely grateful for the dedicated support of the Love Leah Appeal supporters. It’s lovely that they continue to support us year after year and a fantastic tribute to Leah.” The generous donations made by the Love Leah Appeal helped to fund relatives’ accommodation in our Sid Watkins Building through the Home from Home Appeal and one of the bedrooms is named after Leah in recognition of this support.  The Love Leah Appeal continues to raise money for The Walton Centre Charity’s Home from Home Fund to ensure families can continue to use this facility free of charge.
