Fenland teenager who won Kids Are Alright award releases 2011 Whittlesey calendar for Great Ormond Street
A TEENAGER has created a calendar of her home town to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Emily Hill was inspired to make the 2011 calendar of Whittlesey by her friend Siobhan Southwell, who had her kidney replace in 2007 at the renowned children’s hopsital.
Fourteen-year-old Emily’s first calendar, sold in 2009, sold 160 copies and raised a total of �800 for new equipment at the hospital’s dialysis unit. The outstanding response encouraged Emily to bring out a second edition which took nearly a year to produce.
The determined teenager has so far sold more than 50 copies of her new calendar and demand is growing, She is hoping to raise at least �400.
Since launching her charity campaign Emily has raised more than �2,000 for the hospital and climbed Mount Snowdon. Her efforts were recognised by the Kids Are Alright Campaign, run through this newspaper, last year when she won a monthly award of shopping vouchers.
