Event raises cash for Lupus research
by Natasha Young

AN event to raise funds and awareness for Lupus research has been hailed a success, after it took place in Birkdale last Friday (November 30).

The Liverpool Road Methodist Church coffee morning was organised by local residents Mary Croughan and Elaine Boden, in memory of Mary's daughter Leslie-Ann Westhead.

Leslie-Ann died in May at the aged of 54 after battling with Lupus, an uncommon condition in which the immune system attacks healthy cells, tissue and organs.

The event raised more than £379 for Lupus charities thanks to help from businesses in Birkdale Village, who donated prizes for a raffle and tombola.

Mary said it was “really, really wonderful” that people came to help raise the money in just two hours.

She also thanked everyone who supported the event.
