A CHARITY evening is to be held in memory of a six-year-old Gwersyllt girl killed in a car crash.
Wrexham Lager Club will be holding the event tomorrow (Friday) to raise money for Olivia’s Fund, a tribute fund set up in memory of Olivia Wood.
Olivia was one of five people killed in a two-car smash in Spital, Wirral, in March this year, along with her gran, Linda Wood, 59, of Eastham, Merseyside, and her great-aunt, Ann Hargreaves, 71, of Bromborough, Merseyside.
Another passenger, Joan Roden- Jones, 64, a therapist from Gwersyllt, who was a friend of Mrs Hargreaves, died in hospital.
Olivia’s devastated parents, Julie and Darren Wood, set up the tribute fund earlier this year through Hope House Hospice.
Tomorrow’s event will feature a soul night, with Denzil on disco, as well as fun and games.
There will also be a charity raffle taking place on the night, featuring a number of prizes.
Mrs Wood said: “Hope House and all their staff have provided enormous comfort to us over the past few months.
“The service they provide is amazing and we will continue to do all we can to raise money for Hope House.”
Hope House Children’s Hospices – Hope House in Oswestry and Ty Gobaith in Conwy – provide practical and emotional support to families of terminally ill children.
She added: “We’ve planned a fun evening and would encourage everyone to come along to support a worthy cause. We would like to thank the Lager Club for letting us use the venue for free.”
The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £3 on the door.
Last month the Chronicle told how Olivia’s family had used money from the funerals to buy a piano for Gwersyllt CP School, which Olivia attended, along with a plaque.
