A MARHAM woman is determined to raise enough money to pay for a day’s worth of brain tumour research in memory of her sister.
Emilie Johnston has organised a charity disco which she has called A Night to Remember to raise £2,740 to pay for the research.
The fundraiser will be held four years after her elder sister Aimee Walton, of King’s Lynn, died from an aggressive brain tumour in October 2013 aged 29.
Mother to Jack, now aged 11, Mrs Walton died around 18 months after she was diagnosed.
“I have chosen Brain Tumour Research as, if we can raise the money, we can then name the day after Aimee and get a plaque with her name on,” said Mrs Johnston.
“I know it’s a lot of money to raise, but only around one per cent from cancer research money goes into brain tumour research.”
A Night to Remember will take place on Friday, July 14 at the Knights Hill Hotel in South Wootton and start at 7.30pm and finish at midnight.
There will also be a raffle on the night and Mrs Johnston is appealing for residents and businesses to donate prizes.
Tickets cost £5 and will be on sale from Monday, June 5 at Bespoke Pine ‘n Oak on the Hardwick Narrows Industrial Estate.
