Staveley Morrisons store has been fundraising in memory of 14-yr-aged Logan Folger and is to sponsor a sparkling snowflake on Sheffield Children’s Hospital’s once-a-year Christmas screen.
Logan regrettably died at the hospital right after currently being rescued from the River Rother, shut to the Chesterfield Canal, by emergency teams.
Lisa Richardson, who is Logan’s auntie and and also community winner at Morrison’s in Staveley, reported the entire local community had been stunned and saddened by the incident.
“When Logan handed away quite shut to our keep and was taken care of at Sheffield Children’s Hospital we imagined it would be a nice gesture to raise the money in his memory.
“Logan and his loved ones are nicely recognized in Staveley. The community was stunned and so saddened by Logan’s dying.
“It was also a personal tragedy to me because Logan is my nephew.
“On the working day of his funeral three of my colleagues, Kelly, Nikki and Sandra, held a bucket collection for Sheffield Children’s Clinic in Logan’s memory.
“We carried on fundraising right until we had plenty of to order the snowflake.”
Each and every snowflake has a personalised tag to say who sponsored it, and Logan’s will study: ‘A reward from Morrisons Staveley and close friends and loved ones of Logan Folger. Our Hero!’
“Staveley is a tiny city and was completely devastated by the dying of Logan,” Lisa reported.
“Our consumers have been so generous. Our retailer and our group are so happy to have carried out this in Logan’s memory.
“The cash lifted from the snowflakes this calendar year are heading towards a much-required helipad on the medical center.
“We will carry on to fundraise through the 12 months for this result in.”
Logan’s mum, Stacey Bentley, reported it was an ‘absolutely lovely’ gesture and she was so delighted people had been coming alongside one another to fundraise in Logan’s memory.
The bag, along with a cap and Logan’s speaker, which have due to the fact been returned, ended up taken from the river financial institution after the tragic incident on August 18.
