HER FINAL DAYS
Near to the day she died when she was very poorly, her young relatives came to visit her. As young kids always do, they wanted to go swimming. She had no energy to do this – unlike her small relatives. Holly had a loving and responsible attitude. She went with them to the swimming pool, sitting alongside with only her feet dipped in the water but always looking out for their safety.
In 2010 while in hospital, Holly developed an interest in charity engagement. During her various admissions to hospital, Holly helped to go around the wards with a tin, collecting money for any cause that needed it.
This was to keep her busy; she was loved and admired for what she was doing. She was a good fund raiser. She wrote a strategic work plan for how she would do her fund raising. This was to polish the nails of patients in exchange for a small donation.
As part of her plan, she drew a bottle of nail polish and a bottle of nail vanish. This would be an advert and the actual bottles would be her stock. She said ‘I want to bring a smile to patients and polish their nails at a price of £1 per person’.
The money raised would go to her chosen charity. Sadly, shortly after this and before she could put her plan into action, she passed away.
