Our ambassador, Kirsty Ashton, has returned from her Summer trip to camp America. And there’s been a lot going on since we last updated you on her whereabouts!
For those of you who haven’t read about Kirsty on here before, she is an inspiring young women who is on a mission to raise £250,000 for When You Wish Upon A Star. She suffers from neurofibromatosis and scoliosis, and since experiencing her trip to Lapland, she has been trying to help other children’s wishes come true.
Kirsty has been busier than ever since she came home from the USA. She has started her six-month work placement with CBBC, which she is really excited about.
She went in for her 20th operation at the end of September, to remove some tumors that were giving her a lot of pain. The operation went well and she is feeling a lot better now.
Kirsty Ashton’s charity work
Kirsty hasn’t slowed down on her charity work either. She’s got a few different events coming up; a spookathon for Halloween, a talent show in January and her black and white ball which is this Saturday!
…and with all of this going on, she’s continued to raise funds for When You Wish Upon A Star through Give as you Live. This just goes to show, with it downloaded to her laptop, it fits in perfectly with her hectic lifestyle.
Her online shopping fundraising total has now reached £41.38, so she’s almost qualified to be part of the £50 club! Read more about her shopping over on her blog here.
Supporting When You Wish Upon A Star
Linda and Jess from the charity team are excited to be going to the ball this Saturday: so much so they bought new dresses, supporting When You Wish Upon A Star via Kirsty for good (of course).
