Elle's christmas party 2

A special “Elle’s Christmas” party in memory of cystic fibrosis sufferer Elle Morris helped raise almost £3,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The event, in the Nantwich Suite at Rookery Hall & Spa in Nantwich, was heled to remember the life of Nantwich youngster Elle who died aged 11 at Great Ormond Street Hospital in January this year.

Stapeley Broad Lane pupil Elle made her way into the nation’s hearts when she became the face of the Trust as she waited for a double lung transplant.

Her “Elle’s Wishes” campaign helped raise awareness and was backed by celebrities, campaigners and patients around the UK.

But she suffered a setback after undergoing a double lung transplant, after a series of seizures and complications she passed away.

The Christmas party featured stalls, crafts, entertainment, refreshments and a prize raffle.

There was also an information point relating to cystic fibrosis.

In total, the party raised £2987.21.

Elle’s mum Becky, from Nantwich, paid tribute to all the local businesses who helped out.
