A FAMILY fun day is being held in memory of a popular Middlewich nurse.

Sally Hill, who worked at Oaklands Medical Centre, tragically died in a car crash in August 2016, but her daughter Kathryn now wants to raise awareness of the perils of dangerous driving.

After a recent appeal to residents, a venue has now been set for the fun day for Saturday, August 12 at Market Field, Middlewich.

Fundraising is now continuous with the aim of donating to road safety charity Brake and raising awareness of the topic, with it culminating in the fun day. 

Kathryn said: “We chose Break because we want to make sure that people have someone to speak to if they’re a victim of the same ordeal.

“But importantly, if we can just make at least one person think about being more careful with their driving, then we will have made a positive impact.

“She was so well known around Middlewich because of her work, so it just made sense to do it in Middlewich.

“My mum was big on family, so it made sense to do a fun day where everyone could get involved, and I think she would be very proud of what we’re doing.”

In 2015, 1,804 people were killed and 22,855 seriously injured in the UK as a result of accidents on the road.

Brake, a road safety charity, deals with a number of campaigns that aim to reduce road incidents, whilst also offering victim support.
