THERE’S still a chance for people to play their part in remembering beautiful schoolgirl Becky Bell at a memorial evening later this month.
Becky’s loving family have organised the event as a chance for people to look back and celebrate the life of the much-loved schoolgirl, a year after she tragically lost her battle with brain cancer at just seven years old.
Becky’s mum and dad, Julie, 41, and Mark, 37, have raised a huge £10,000 in just one year in memory of their daughter.
And even more cash will be raised for children’s cancer charity Clic Sargent and ward 14 at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary at the memorial evening at the Belle Vue Way Social Club, in Kendal Road on Friday, January 25.
Tickets have been selling fast for the event, which features a performance from popular band The Style Selektors, but there is still chance for people to snap up a ticket before the event.
Julie and Mark are also appealing for people and organisations to donate prizes to be used in the auction and raffles on the night.
Julie, who is also mum to Vicki, 24, and Mark, 12, said: “We wanted to organise the event a year on to celebrate Becky’s life and remember the lovely times we had with her, we don’t want it to be doom and gloom.
“The response of people has been fantastic again and we are so grateful.
“But it would be great if we could get a few more prizes for the raffle and for the auction beforehand to help raise even more money for the charities which helped us so much.”
Becky’s last birthday party was fancy dress so Julie and Mark decided to make fancy dress optional for the event at the Belle Vue, which will get underway at around 7.30pm.
“It will be good fun, which is what Becky would have wanted,” added Julie.
“We would like to say thanks to people who have already bought tickets and donated prizes.”
