IT’S off to a Scarborough charity - and that’s official!
Ellie’s Fund are holding a Wear A Hat Day to raise funds in memory of a former Scalby School pupil.
Organisers are appealing for people to don colourful and creative headgear, Friday March 30, to boost the fund set up in memory of 14-year-old Ellie Othick-Bowmaker.
Ellie passed away in 2010 after a brave battle against a brain tumour.
However, the fund has already raised more than £60,000 and it is currently helping 16 children locally who are undergoing treatment for brain tumours.
Her mum Heather added: “This year is very poignant for us, as Ellie would have been ﬁnishing secondary school and celebrating with all her friends.
“It has been a difﬁcult time, so I’m very grateful for everyone’s help and support.”
