Becky and Elle Morris

A special Christmas party in memory of tragic Nantwich youngster Elle Morris will help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The event is being staged by Elle’s mum Becky Whitfield and friends almost a year after Elle’s last day at home before returning to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The 11-year-old never returned home and died in hospital on January 3, after suffering infections following her double lung transplant.

Now Becky is keen to keep Elle’s memory alive – and one of her 10 wishes to continue raising funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The party is this Sunday November 25, from 2.30pm to 5.30pm, at the Rookery Hall and Spa in Nantwich.

There will be stalls, refreshments, crafts and entertainment, with all proceeds going to the trust. Adults £2, kids £1.

Becky, who lives in Nantwich, said: “It’s in memory of Elle’s last day at home with all her friends before she went back down to Great Ormond street hospital.

“Unfortunately she never came and home and passed away 3rd January.

“I want to keep her memory alive by celebrating her Christmas party every year!”

Elle Morris, 10 wishes, going to Santaland

Former Stapeley Broad Lane pupil Elle became the national face and inspiration for the trust and thousands of Cystic Fibrosis sufferers.

When the family launched her “Elle’s Wishes” campaign, she was featured in local and national media as she tried to achieve each wish while she waited for a transplant.

A donor was found and the transplant took place in early 2017. However, serious infections and complications set in and surgeons were unable to save her.
