A spectacular Greatest Showman themed event at Peckforton Castle raised almost £4000 in memory of Elle Morris from Nantwich.

The 11-year-old was born with cystic fibrosis and died last year after complications following a double lung transplant.

The fundraiser was organised by Elle’s mum Rebecca Whitfield to mark what would have been her daughter’s 13th birthday. ‘It was an amazing evening,’ Rebecca said. ‘We had about 100 people there and we raised a lot of money and had a lot of fun.’

The money will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Rebecca is now planning her next event in memory of Elle, a family fun in the summer. u
