Shelley Wilson recently organised a Sunday morning coffee and cake event at her house in Solihull, West Midlands. The event was organised in memory of Shelley’s cousin, Lee Johnson, 24, who passed away on Sunday 12 December 2010. Shelley says, ‘It was standing room only as 55 people took part. Steaming mugs of coffee, a HUGE assortment of cakes and stalls selling handmade cards and jewellery kept everyone entertained and we managed to raise over £480 for Epilepsy Research UK with more still to come in. Despite the tragic circumstances we are all really pleased with the support from our friends, colleagues and neighbours in being able to raise such an amazing sum.’
Lee’s family are also attending the various ERUK running events around the country in his memory and are busy organising charity luncheons and dinner dances.
