A GRIEVING borough youngsters has raised over £1,300 for Marie Curie in memory of his beloved grandma.
Eight-year-old Tyler Inman was devastated when he lost his gran – Jennifer Tudge – to cancer just two days after Christmas this year.
But he channeled his grief into positivity and arranged a table-top sale and tea and cake sale to raise money for the charity which cared for Jennifer in her ‘darkest times’.
The brave youngster set himself a target of £180, but was amazed at the tremendous support and generosity he experienced which helped him raise a whopping £1,327.
Tyler said: “Thank you to everyone who supported and donated us.
“Marie Curie looked after my Grandma so well and I wanted to do something to say thank you to everyone at the charity and the Solihull hospice.”
Tyler still receives counselling at the Solihull hospice where he sees ‘the wonderful’ Ann Scanlon.
Counselling is just one of the support services offered to families and patients at the hospice.
