Pitch up and park for a good cause

A CLITHEROE family is asking local people to pitch up and park this Easter as they hold a car boot sale in support of their disabled little girl’s appeal.

The family of nine-year-old Erin Bater is hoping to raise the £3,000 needed to fund specialist support as Erin has an undiagnosed condition, which causes severe learning disability, global development delay and low muscle tone.

The youngster has been attending The Legacy Rainbow House for specialist treatment since the age of two, allowing her to take her first steps. However, as a result of a leap in demand for the charity’s specialist expertise, it must raise additional funds to ensure it can sustain and develop its services to meet future need. Each current visiting family has therefore been asked to raise £3,000 to help the charity’s fund-raising team increase support in the communities where they are located.

Cindy Bater, Erin’s mother said: “We are overwhelmed with the amount of support we have received so far, all the funds raised make such a difference to Erin’s future and we would like to thank everyone and ask them to continue to support us in our appeal.”

The car boot sale will be held on Sunday, April 8th, in the car park of Shackletons Garden Centre, Clitheroe. Prices are £10 per car or £15 if paid on the day. Gates open at 7 a.m. Anyone requiring further information is asked to contact Richard on 01200 440760.
