In the September edition of CroxleyNews, we featured the story of Natalie Carpenter and her two sons who were both diagnosed with cancer in 2017.
Freddie tragically died at the age of five the following year and Natalie’s other son Arthur is now in remission.
On September 20, Natalie took part in a wing walk to raise money for Alice’s Arc, a children’s cancer charity which she is a trustee of and has raised an excess of £7,000.
We caught up with her to ask her how the day went.
Natalie said: “I absolutely loved it I think, having been through everything we had been through it was just exciting and fun.
“If I didn’t feel brave, I just thought the boys have been so brave and it was a lovely chance to honour Freddie and reflect on his life.”
Natalie also wanted to thank her husband Martin, who has been so supportive through everything.
Clare Lemon, who owns CJ barbers in the village, got in touch to share how her fundraising went.
In total together with Jo from The Sportsman Pub, they have raised £2633.22 for children’s cancer charity Alice’s Arc.
Clare mentioned that they have also received donations from the community centre and Morrison’s.
The fundraising does not stop there though, as both Clare and Jo will be continuing to accept donations and raise money for Alice’s Arc.
