Big sis has big heart as she fundraises for brother who has leukaemia
08 November 2016
Evie Murphy, aged 9, from Benfleet, has been raising money for Neptune Children’s Ward at Southend Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
She wanted to raise money as a 'thank you' for the care her
younger brother Archie, aged 5, has received during his treatment
Evie presented a cheque for £303 to staff on Neptune, which was
raised at Kent's Hill Infant School in Benfleet, which Evie
attends. Pupils donated a pound and wore a bandage round their arms
or legs for a whole day.
Kate Murphy, Evie's mum, said: "I am so very proud of Evie for
coming up with such an original idea to raise money for Neptune
Ward and GOSH, she has been such an inspiration and brave
supportive sister to Archie."
