I was delighted to have been able to enjoy the company to our little VIP for the day, Niamh Brown.
I invited Niamh and her family along to Derbyshire County Council’s Distinct Derbyshire tent as a community champion to enjoy a afternoon tea (and lots of sweeties!). I was delighted she was able to join us for with her dad, Darrell, and baby sister Martha.
Niamh is a truly brave girl – after enduring a year of treatment for a rare childhood strain of ovarian cancer.
She has inspired the Glossopdale community into raising lots of money for good causes*, schoolmates at Dinting Primary with her determination to get into school when she could and for raising awareness of childhood cancers.
Speaking to dad, she took all this in her stride and always remained laughing and smiling.
Amazing young woman.
* including Dad, who’s doing the Manchester to Blackpool bike ride for charity next weekend – Good luck Darrell!!
UPDATE:- If anyone would like to donate to Niamh’s fund-raising page/sponsor Darrell on his 60 miles charity bike ride please visit https://www.justgiving.com/NiamhBrown
