Fundraiser in memory of Bridgwater mum
12:36pm Friday 8th June 2012 in Bridgwater Area News
A FUNDRAISING evening is being held in memory of a Bridgwater woman, who died unexpectedly aged 39.
Brymore School kitchen assistant Jane Bone collapsed in her classroom and died two days later on June 16, 2011.
Now her family are raising funds for Musgrove Park Hospital Intensive Care Unit (ICU), which cared for her in her final days.
The event will be held at the Globe Inn, Cannington, at 6.30pm on Saturday, June 16 – to mark her death.
Sister-in-law Joanne said: “When Jane was taken poorly, it was the ICU that cared for her and where she spent her last 24 hours. They were absolutely fantastic – with all the family – and you couldn’t have asked for kinder people.”
The family raised £1,600 at Jane’s funeral, split between the Air Ambulance and ICU, and they hope to hold annual fundraising events in aid of the charities.
The Globe Inn fundraiser will include skittles, raffles and an auction. Tickets will be sold on the night at £1 a strip and it costs £5 to take part in the skittles night.
Jane is survived by her childhood sweetheart Daniel, 41, and their three children Louise, 19, Nicola, 17, and Alex, 12.
