Joe Ellis Trust hits its £100,000 target

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 - 14:57

FUNDRAISING for Joe Ellis has today (Tuesday) smashed the £100,000 target.
The Joe Ellis Trust announced the incredible total on its Facebook page: "After weeks of hard work from each and everyone of you, I am today very honoured to announce the grand total of £101,077.21."
Joe Ellis, who died aged just 13, united the Island with a campaign to raise £100,000 for a brand new treatment it was hoped would treat his aggressive cancer.
Events such as festival goers egging police officers, cake sales, danceathons, sponsored walks and the making of thousands of loom bands were held around the Island in aid of the Christ the King pupil.
His family, mum Sally, dad Simon and brother Jack, 16, always vowed that if Joe did not need the money it would go to help other Island families with children suffering from cancer.
Fundraising is set to continue and Joe's family are currently working to transform the Joe Ellis Trust into a registered charity.
