STUDENTS RAISE CASH IN MEMORY OF BABY SCARLET
Kind hearted students from City of Wolverhampton College are raising cash for charity in memory of a classmate’s daughter.
The group, who are all studying Health and Social Care, decided to fundraise for the British Heart Foundation after hearing how fellow student Amy Nicholls had lost her baby two years ago to a serious heart condition.
Amy’s daughter Scarlet passed away at just nine days old in Birmingham Children’s Hospital to Heterotaxy syndrome, a rare birth defect that involves the heart and other organs.
Her class have now organised a raffle on March 26 in memory of her. Prizes include a manicure, hair appointment, gym membership, family photoshoot, beauty hamper and restaurant vouchers.
Amy said: “I had never really mentioned Scarlet before to my class, so when I did they were all really shocked and wanted to do something in her memory.
“I am so grateful to my classmates for showing their supporting and organising a fundraiser for a charity that is so close to my heart.”
