Lostock Hall Carnival Queen pays visit to St Catherine’s Hospice
St Catherine’s Hospice welcomed a special type of royal visit from the Lostock Hall Carnival Queen.
Emily Rose Slinger, aged 11 visited the hospice at Lostock Hall to show her appreciation for the support provided to her Grandmother 17 years ago.
Emily, a student at Lostock Hall Academy, said: “My Grandmother had cancer and received after care here and they did such a good job”.
“It’s nice to come and meet other people who are being cared for in the hospice.
“I also wanted to see where the money raised was being spent as I think it’s a really important charity in the local community.”
Emily’s Mum, Suzanne is taking part in the Moonlight Walk for a second year to show her support to a local and worthy cause and is hoping to beat the £300.00 raised last time.
She said: “My family and I were so proud when Emily was chosen as the Lostock Hall Carnival Queen especially as she is the youngest Queen Lostock Hall has ever had.
“Emily had said it would be an honour to be the Queen and she wanted to support the community.
“Emily decided that during her reign she would try and raise as much money as she could for St Catherine’s and has recently held a Games Night at her local Guides and she is also looking forward to taking part in her first ever Moonlight Walk with me this year.
Suzanne talks about her experience of visiting St Catherine’s Hospice with her daughter and added: “I was thrilled when Emily chose St Catherine’s Hospice as her charity due to them supporting my mum with her after care and the hospice has cared for other friends who sadly lost their battle.
“I must thank the Hospice staffs whom were all very welcoming during our recent visit, and I was very impressed with the facilities available to both the patients and their families during our tour.
“It was lovely to see that Emily had brought some sunshine to the patients’ day.”
