Teenager Holly Richardson has raised more than £2,400 for a children’s hospital.
She took part in a three-mile sponsored swim, and organised a squashathon, and two cake sales.
Holly (13), who attends Uckfield Community Technology College and lives in Olives Meadow, Uckfield, with her parents Frances and Mike, and brother Sam will be presenting the money to the Evelina Children’s Hospital in London.
Her brother Sam had an operation for a heart condition there when he was a baby and remains under the hospital’s care. Holly has previously raised £1,300 for them.
This time, encouraged by friends, she swam three miles at Bede’s School, Upper Dicker, and then at the weekend she took part in a squashathon, with the help of squash coach Stephen Holliday and his son Finn, at Nutley squash courts.
Holly’s mum Frances said, at the time her daughter organised the events: “I am a very, very proud mum and Holly is a real star.”
The family is grateful to everybody who supported Holly’s efforts.
