Remembering Huw with lots of love on his 16th birthday
Ever since he was 1, Huw always celebrated his birthday twice – once with his family and once with his friends. On his first birthday, he had a cake and happy birthday sung to him at nursery, and then he had presents at home with Mum and Dad (Carys wasn’t around until his 2nd birthday!)
Last year when he was 15 he went out for a meal at Picollino’s in Holmfirth with Mum, Dad and Carys and then had a day with his friends – which included the daytime at Paintball (which Dad fixed up) and a sleepover with friends afterwards at Mum’s. He had such a lovely day on his 15th birthday. The Paintball was a great success – he loved it and was really appreciative of such a great activity. He had an equally good sleepover with friends at Jenny’s.
This year 25th November was a family day but on 26th November, Huw’s lovely friend Ella (with help from her Mum, Kate) organised balloons to be let off at Sands – with messages everyone had written on tags she had specially printed. Ella sold 170 tags and ended up with a surplus of £195 for the Huw charity after the costs had been paid 🙂 This has been paid on to the Justgiving page.
