Harrison Murray Estate Agency and the Nottingham Building Society (The Nottingham) in March wore fitting outfits in tribute to a true princess, Mikayla Clark, as they handed over vital funds to the hospice that cared for her before she died last year.

Estate agency manager Nicola Roberts, senior negotiator Tracey Palmer and customer adviser Carrie-Anne Johnson dressed as princesses on a visit to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) in Milton to present a cheque for £500.

Nicola said: “It was fantastic to go along to EACH and to present them with the cheque, which will help them continue their amazing work.

“We were blessed to be able to have a tour of the hospice and to meet so many great and inspirational people. It was the icing on the cake to see where the money will be spent after our estate agency and building society teams put so much effort into the fundraising.

“It was lovely and very humbling to have Mikayla’s parents, Neil and Alyson, with us too. We can’t even begin to comprehend what they have been through as a family and can only hope that they can take some comfort from the fact the money raised will help other people in the same situation.”

The money was the result of three Christmas grottos held in December - two at Harrison Murray and The Nottingham’s Broad Street branch and one in the town’s large Tesco, the supermarket company having provided fantastic support by also providing free presents and decorations.

Mikayla, from Stonea, died in April 2016, six months after being diagnosed with a rare diffuse pontine glioma.

During that time the hospice made an unthinkable situation a little bit easier and since Mikayla’s passing the family have raised more than £40,000 for them.

Alyson said: “Neil and I are very touched by what Harrison Murray Estate Agents did for the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) in memory of our daughter Mikayla.

“EACH are an essential lifeline to many families, who like us would have been lost without them. The money raised will go a long way to making sure they can carry on being there.”
