Proud Nicola, who is also mum to 13-year-old Matthew, said: “My amazing daughter and her friends took time out of their final school year to help us raise money for our Children’s Appeal at the Royal Preston Hospital.
“They know that we are passionate about ensuring that children and their families coming into hospital are cared for in a bright and friendly environment.
“The shopping list of items the appeal is fundraising for will ensure we can make not only the children’s ward itself but also paediatric outpatients better and more comfortable.
“On behalf of everyone who is involved in paediatric care at RPH, thank you for supporting Jennifer and her friends’ efforts to help out.”
