A Luton woman whose sister sadly died of cancer before Keech Hospice Care was built is holding her first fundraising event in aid of the charity.

Helen Reynolds, 42, of Swasedale Road said: “When the hospice opened a year after Lindsey died, we as a family felt Keech offered such a valuable service.

“My parents immediately volunteered and they still go every Sunday, even though they are both 80.”

Now it’s Helen’s turn to do something for the organisation so close to all their hearts.

She opened Happy Tiddlers last summer and is holding a splashathon at Keech’s hydro pool on Sunday, March 29.

She explained: “When my son Archie was born in 2011 we had to travel to Milton Keynes for baby swimming lessons.

“Then the opportunity came up for me to train as an instructor and I jumped at the chance.

“We take babies from eight weeks to pre-school age. We started with seven and now we have nearly 60.”
