Mum and son fundraise for SANDS

A RIPLEY mum and her son are helping to raise cash for the Stillbirth and Neonatal Deaths Society (SANDS).

Katrina Snowball, 26, is helping her friend Katie Louise Dowler, who tragically lost her son Jonah in May this year during labour, to organise a Christmas fair.

The fair takes place at Lumb Farm Country Club, Marehay, on Sunday, December 11, at 5pm and will include a live band, a bouncy castle and a visit from Santa Claus. On the same day there will be a candlelit walk from Ripley Market Place at 3pm. Adult tickets cost £5 and £1 for 12 years and under. For more information call Katie on 01773 741631 or 07970 149593.

This Saturday, Katrina’s son Bradley, six, is embarking on a sponsored walk along the Monsal Trail. To sponsor Bradley call 07805693980.
