Image of 'Amy's Wish' brings some Christmas charity to College

A Health and Social Care student brought some heartfelt Christmas spirit into College today, as her charity, ‘Amy’s Wish’, raised money for Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.

Amy Griffin’s team organised a coffee morning and cake sale, along with festive candy canes that students and staff could send to each other as a Christmas gesture. The Christmas Wish Tree at the College’s entrance was another thoughtful and personal way to add to the cause, with people able to add a star to the tree with a personal wish for loved ones who can’t be with them this Christmas.

Amy said: “I started Amy’s Wish because my mum passed away from cancer, and I wanted to keep her memory alive by creating something that she could be the main focus of. I’ve done this since I was in primary school and it’s gone brilliantly. I’ve raised over £10,000 through the charity over the years, and I’m looking forward to raising more.”

She concluded: “I think other people can relate to the cause. If they’ve lost loved ones through cancer, it gives them a chance to keep their spirit alive.”
