This morning Holy Nativity was filled to bursting with members of the wider community as everyone came together to raise money for CRY, Cardiac Risk in the Youth. The coffee morning was the brainchild of Alisha who wanted to do something in memory of her best friend Ashleigh Danforth. Working together with Ashleigh’s family they have all put together a fantastic morning for the community of Mixenden to come together and remember a young woman everyone loved.

CRY is a charity that is preventing young sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening and research, and supporting affected families.

For weeks Alisha has been arranging raffle prices from local businesses and members of the community. People have been baking home made cakes of all varieties and this morning all of their hard work has paid off.

In total, £2259.56 has been raised for CRY since Ashleigh’s death.  This is a truly wonderful achievement from the people of North Halifax and a testimony to how much Ashleigh was loved by the people of Halifax.
