A FAMILY of fundraisers is hosting a month of events in memory of their daughter who died of cancer in 2009.

Kimberley Trickett passed away at Ashgate Hospice aged just 20 years old, after suffering a malignant brain tumour.

“Kim had cancer four times in her young life but never let it get in the way of her hopes and dreams to go to Nottingham University and study a Masters Degree in Childrens Nursing” said her mum, Tracie Holocuk.

“Kim was a beautiful young lady, inside and out and has left her legacy of caring for others to carry on through us.”

Now family and friends are continuing the fundraising they began when she died, which has so far raised over £34,000 for her memorial fund at Ashgate Hospice.

On Sunday, May 22 there is a car boot sale at Tansley followed by the annual Kimmy Charity Night at Club Chesterfield.

They are also hosting a charity fashion show at Club Chesterfield on Thursday, June 2, with more events later in the year.
