The mum of a four-year-old girl from Fowlmere who died of a form of kidney cancer is throwing a crafty fundraiser to raise cash for the cause which helped her daughter while she was having treatment.

Angela Mulholland’s daughter Eilish was diagnosed with a Wilm’s tumour in Oct 2013.

She endured treatment including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery but sadly passed away after 51 weeks of treatment.

The Beads of Courage programme by the Be Camcer Aware charity has been rolled out in 76 hospitals in the UK – including Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and throughout Eilish’s treatment journey she collected a different coloured bead for each different medical intervention – a red bead for each blood transfusion and a white bead for each chemotherapy round.

“Eilish loved collecting her beads, and they make such a motivational difference to all cancer and chronic illness sufferers, representing their brave journeys,” said Angela.

“We are fundraising to maintain the Beads of Courage at Addenbrooke’s in Eilish’s memory.”

The Craft Day will take place on Sunday from 10am to 4.30pm at Fowlmere Village Hall,

There are several craft workshops available to pre-book and attend, some for children and adults too, include lino cutting & printing, willow weaving, traditional patchwork, clay hand dish, mixed media on canvas and the delicate Paper cutting.

There will also be mini crafts that you can attend on the day, refreshments, a raffle, and an exhibition of works by local crafters, some of which will be available to buy.
