PROM dreams have been made a reality thanks to a Northwich family.

Leonie Kerr and her dad Andrew have been helping school pupils around Mid Cheshire get to their special day.

They decided to start doing this last year as a way of raising money for the Christie Hospital, which supported Leonie’s brother Adam Green who died eight years ago as a result of Hodgkin lymphoma, aged just 24.

Leonie, 31 and from Barnton, said: “Losing Adam was incredibly difficult for myself and my family.

“Along with my twin brother Dan, we were always together. Whether that be walking to school, playing football after school or simply just being your typical children.

“It took a long time for me to come to terms with the loss and I do struggle sometimes still.

“I just want to make him proud and in everything I do or achieve in my life he is always in my thoughts.”

On the support shown by the hospital, she added: “The Christie was amazing!

“From arranging his wedding, which actually took place in the hospital gardens on Palatine Road, to arranging two nights away to Center Parcs for us.

“They made him comfortable and kept him laughing and in good spirits even on his bad days.

“They also allowed for us to stay over just to make him feel some kind of normality having his family with him.”

Last year Leonie took part in a charity walk from Northwich to the Christie Hospital in Manchester.

It was this that inspired her and her father to start organising prom runs and ask for donations.

Since then they have raised more than £2,500.

“We are so incredibly proud to have raised so much money,” Leonie said.

“We never ask for a minimum amount, it’s simply what people want to donate. Every penny counts and it is really rewarding to see the kids’ faces when we arrive to collect them, grinning from ear to ear!

“I want to say a huge thank you to my dad and his wife Joanne. As well as providing the cars they also do the prom runs. Without them, it wouldn’t be possible.

“And a massive thank you to everyone who donates!”
