Children With Cancer UK
This year we have decided to support the Children With Cancer UK charity. We will do this via an eBay OOAK doll auction and a raffle which will take place during the Sunday Salesroom.
Last year we raised almost £14,000 for the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Charity.
About this Charity
In February 1987, leukaemia claimed the life of 14-year-old Paul O’Gorman. Within weeks of his death, Eddie and Marion started fundraising.
Just nine months later, another devastating blow struck the family when Paul’s sister, Jean, was also killed by cancer.
In November 1987, just days after Jean’s death, their parents, Eddie and Marion O’Gorman, met Diana, Princess of Wales. Deeply moved by the double tragedy, she personally helped to establish this charity.
