The family of baby Ronnie has arranged a family fun day in his memory and to raise money for us. 

Ronnie, from Aberhafesp, was born with complex needs and received care at the hospices until he passed away aged 15 months in November last year.

His parents Alice Birch and Lewis Jones and their six-month-old baby Dougie are now raising money to support the hospice which they say was a vital part of Ronnie’s life.

Donate to Ronnie's birthday memorial fundraiser

The Party on Ronnie Street, which will be held on the weekend after Ronnie’s Birthday on 26th July, and will take place on Saturday, 23rd July, at Seasons Café in Caersws and will have stalls, food, disco, ice cream, live music, a bar, fun runs, games and lots more.

“Ronnie Street is a play on Sesame Street as Ronnie love Elmo, he was his favourite,” said mum Alice

“This event will celebrate Ronnie’s life and second birthday, as well as raising money for Hope House who were our rock.”

Community support

Alice and Lewis recently ran a zumbini in Newtown and raised some £900, and the Party on Ronnie Street has already raised £5,000.

“The support we’ve had from the community over recent months has been incredible,” said Lewis.

“To have raised our fundraising target before the day has even taken place is just amazing.

“We can’t wait to get together again with the community and celebrate Ronnie’s birthday.”

The day starts at 12pm and will run into the evening. It is free admission and free to park, although the activities will have a small cost of £1 which will go towards Hope House Children’s Hospices.

Our fundraiser Bekki said: “We are hugely grateful to Alice and Lewis for supporting us again, and for already raising such an incredible amount to make sure we can be there for other families and children that need us the most.”
