Laura Watkin, a Monkseaton girl, is staging the event at the Church, on Eastfield Avenue in Monkseaton, in memory of her father Phil, who died aged just 48 of a heart attack.
All money raised will go to the British Heart Foundation to help create awareness of heart conditions and how it can take someone so suddenly. The Charity is close to Laura’s family, as heart disease runs in the family, and they would like to give something back to the British Heart Foundation for the excellent work they do.
Laura has obtained raffle prizes donated by local firms including: a £100 garden maintenance prize, a photo shoot at a Whitley Bay photographer, two hair dressers’ vouchers, a meal voucher and many more top prizes. There will also be a homemade cake stall, a craft stall and many other surprises at this ‘coffee morning with a twist’. All are welcome.
