A Rugby family’s fun day has raised around £1,200 for the Ronald McDonald Houses.

Andy and Tara Winter organised a Princess-themed fundraising day in Newton on Sunday, July 17 after the charity gave the couple a place to stay while their six-year-old daughter, Caitlin, was in Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Caitlin was admitted to the hospital back in January suffering from Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and her parents wanted to use the event as an opportunity to raise awareness of this condition, in addition to generating money for charity.

Andy said: “People were so generous with their time and it was overwhelming when I found out how much we raised. Quite emotional.

“The kids loved the day. Caitlin was running round everywhere and her sister Kiera said it was the best day she’d ever had.”

And he added: “Because it did so well, we are looking at doing the same thing next year.”
