Afternoon of fun

A PORTISHEAD mum is using a prize won at a charity fundraising day to organise her own event for the same cause.

Michelle Bryant is putting on a children’s fun afternoon at Portishead Youth Centre to raise money for Cancer Research after winning free hall hire in a raffle at a fun day organised by the Parish family at Avon Way Hall.

The mum-of-two said: “I lost my mum to cancer earlier in the year and so when I won free hall hire it seemed a great opportunity to do some fundraising of my own.

“Most people these days have had their lives affected by cancer in some way and I feel it is important that we all do our bit to help the organisations that help research the disease or help those affected.”

Michelle has a host of activities arranged for the event which takes place at the Harbour Road centre on Saturday between 4-6pm.

There will also be refreshments on sale and raffle with prizes ranging from �100 gift voucher from Bryant’s Jewellers to a Christmas Hamper. The event is open to everyone.

Michelle added: “A lot of people have already pledged their support. This promises to be lots of fun as well as raising money for such a worthwhile cause.”
