Friends of a Luton schoolgirl who died just before Christmas are holding a fundraiser at Lewsey Football Club on Sunday in her memory. The event is being held on what would have been Leigha Edwards’ 18th birthday and the money raised will be going to Luton & Dunstable NICU as Leigha wanted to be a neonatal nurse. Friends have been auctioning their prom dresses and there will be a large raffle with prizes donated by local shops in Lewsey to shops in The Mall ranging from memberships at gyms to blocks of driving lessons and vouchers for all beauty treatments you can think of. Caribbean and Chinese food will be on sale and there will be a professional henna artist, face painting and events for the kids. There will also be DJs and live music during the event including Lovelite Sound, Hypa Sounds, Eli Brown, Courtney Brown and more to be confirmed.
Cost is £2 entry and the event starts at 1pm.
