With sunshine to match the warmth that was Sheila Woollard, over 40 lovely ladies recently attended an evening in celebration of her life whilst, at the same time, supporting The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. Clatterbridge Hospital was very close to Sheila's heart having trained there in the early days of her nursing career.

Sadly, Sheila passed away earlier this summer but her work colleagues, members of TADs, fellow dog walkers, crafters and friends all joined together in a celebration of 'the ray of sunshine' that was this remarkable woman.

On what would have been Sheila's birthday, the assembled friends enjoyed the perfect Pimms followed by a wonderful meal, culminating in a selection of Sheila's favourite puddings.

Following a quiz and raffle (both with terrific prizes), all hands then turned to transforming Alison's Country Kitchen with bunting pennants and fabric floral decorations; Shelia had a passion for crafty things. The entire evening was filled with music, laughter, friendship and just a tinge of sadness — she would have loved it!

The generosity and kindness shown before and during the evening resulted in a quite sensational £1030 being raised in aid of The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.
