Brianna Ghey was tragically killed in February this year.  She was only 16.

The Warrington Guardian and Brianna’s mum, Esther have joined forces to raise funds for the Mindfulness in Schools Project.

MiSP is a charity which aims to improve the lives of a generation of children and young people by making a genuine, positive difference to their mental health and wellbeing.

One of Lymm’s most-loved shops, Lauel House Interiors decided to raise money to support the appeal and have raised £500 in the process!

It was lovely to welcome Barbara Ogden and Suzie Mathis to our studio to find out more.  You can listen again right here.

Barbara is known throughout Cheshire for her home furnishing and curtain making skills and runs the popular gift shop in the village.

Suzie Mathis is a name that may be familiar to many as “Tiger”, lead of the 60’s girl group The Paper Dolls.

The group scored a massive hit Something in my Heart in 1968.  Suzie went on to record solo songs – and was vocal coach with St Winifred’s School Choir and their 1980 hit, There’s No-one Quite Like Grandma.

With her trademark miniskirts packed away, Suzie went on to Join Manchester’s Piccadilly Radio 261 and BBC Radio Manchester – later BBC Radio 2.

In the early 2000’s, Suzie fronted the Kirsty Howard appeal, raising £5m for The Frances House Children’s Hospice in Manchester.

She now works part-time at Laurel House and was delighted to get involved with fundraising for the Brianna Ghey Memorial Campaign.
