Katie celebrated her 18th birthday with Bowel Cancer UK by setting up a Facebook fundraiser and raised over £650 in memory of her Grandad.
“I chose to fundraise for Bowel Cancer UK because my Grandad was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer on 9 September 2018, two weeks before my birthday. Just under two months later he passed away on 1 December. I knew I wanted to do something in his memory for my 18th birthday the following year, but being away from home left me with very little time to plan, so I began a Facebook fundraiser! I was blown away by all the donations - I had an 18th birthday in true memory of him. It was so easy and completely safe to do. It was incredibly warming and lovely to see the donations go to a charity close to my heart and to help others with this horrific disease. It’s been the beginning of my fundraising bug and I hope to begin a bigger mission to raise even more money soon!”
