Nursery boss to raise £20k for Clatterbridge

Helen LloydA day nursery founder, whose first husband died from cancer 21 years ago, has been telling listeners how she aims to raise £20,000 for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

Helen Lloyd opened Bluebells in September 1997 because she knew she would never have children with him.

She told her story to Live From The Bridge presenter Phil Rostance, whose own children have attended the nursery.

A financial advisor by trade, Helen revealed how she has given herself a twelve month deadline to reach the target.

"We are going to make that target because what we don't raise I'll put in myself anyway!" - Helen Lloyd

She has already taken part in a rainy 50 mile Ride of The Roses raising £650 and has now roped in her friends and family to help her raise the money.

Helen, who previously raised £42,000 for the gene appeal, has set them challenges from skydiving to swimming with sharks at the Blue Planet Aquarium.

Meanwhile, former nursery pupils and staff are being invited to a special 20th birthday party.
