Children’s cancer charity Danica’s Dream Fund has received a cheque for £2,671 from LLW Repository Ltd (LLWR).
The LLWR workforce chose the Egremont based organisation as its charity of the year and have been busy initiating fundraisers, including a sponsored walk up Scafell Pike, England’s highest peak, a sponsored shave and cake sales.
Danica Maxwell passed away in 2010 aged just 15, following three brain tumours, and Dad John, who works on the LLWR Site, went on to launch the charity in her name.
John said: “This donation is excellent and will help families going through cancer. We use donations like this to buy gifts for children with cancer, such as a laptop or we fund a family break, to help them get back to normality.”
Amanda Raynor, who also works on the LLWR Site, took part in the Scafell Pike walk and said: “I’m from Egremont and I know what a great charity this is. I’m close to John and I know what he’s been through. What he does for children is great.
“Scafell Pike was hard work but thoroughly enjoyable. Team spirit got us through.”
The LLWR workforce is continuing to raise funds for the charity which nationally has now raised over £200,000 for those aged up to 23 living with cancer, and their families.
