A Walk for Belle

A truly inspiring young girl, who needs all the support we can give her and her family.

12 months ago, her family heard the words cancer, osteosarcoma; those dreaded words that we never want to hear. She battled through it and never without that contagious beautiful smile.

Belle rang the bell in May to signal the end of a year of gruelling chemo and an operation to remove a bone in her leg, replacing it with titanium.

All was looking promising; a year of hell and now the future to look forward to. Unfortunately a few weeks later they got the news that secondary cancer of the lungs was going to be a new fight. A battle she has fought hard to beat, but tragically she can not fight this anymore. Sadly, she now needs our help to make amazing memories with her whole family.

Let’s get raising the money so the whole family can take time away from work to spend these days being together, where they need to be.

Belle is only 10 years old, so her school friends, parents and teachers are going to, ‘Walk for Belle; a time for making memories’, to help raise money so her dad can be at home. So the family can do just that, make those precious memories with the time they have left together.

On Sat 15th Sept Belle’s class mates and teachers will embark on a 7 mile walk from Roberts Park, Saltaire, to Five Rise Locks, Bingley, and back again. Please support these amazing kids, their families, the teachers of Blakehill Primary, Belle and her family.

Thank you for taking time to read this and please please donate and share. Thank you again as with your help we can make this happen. xxx

    Well done to everyone who took part in yesterday’s walk. It was amazing. xxx I was so proud of everyone who helped make it happen, especially to the children who were so well behaved and walked with smiles on their faces. A special thank you to Mick who gave the children rides on his barge and to Gini, who photographed the whole event, capturing those special memories. This is what it was about. Bringing friends together; making new friendships and making memories. Belle we thank you, a true inspiration to your school friendsxx

    Since setting up the just giving page in July, Isabelle Ellis sadly passed away on the morning of Tuesday 4th September. After speaking with her family, we are still going ahead with the walk on the 15th September to remember such an inspirational young lady. We will fundraise until the end of September to allow the family to continue to spend precious time together. Our children feel the walk will help them to support each other as well as support Belle’s family.

    I set this page up hoping to get £1000 and you smashed it it 24hrs, so I raised it to £2500 and yet again your generosity shone through and we smashed it another 48rs later. So I am here again setting a new target of £4000 and I know you can do it. Thank you all so much for your support. Together we can xxxx
