On the 24th August 2014, Garreg Goch Caravan Park will be holding our annual fun day in aid of the Alex Hulme Foundation. Alex was a wonderful boy who spent many happy holidays at Garreg Goch Caravan Park, where he would stay in his Grandparents caravan. Sadly his life was taken far too early, by Non-Hodkin Lymphoma. Please join us for our annual fun day, when we have bouncy castles, childrens games (and also for adults who dare to join in!) tombola stall, burger stall etc., followed in the evening by a disco, dancing, singing from Nicola Stringfellow and a hog roast. It’s a wonderful, happy event held in Alex’s memory to raise awareness of this disease and hopefully lots of money for research and machinery funded by the foundation.
Alex’s story -
Alex was born in Trafford on July 29th 1999 and led a full and fruitful life, endearing himself to all who met him with his fun, easy going and mature approach to life.
In March 2011, Alex was diagnosed with B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma which came as a massive shock to everyone who knew him.
Throughout his treatment Alex was very brave and positive doing all that was asked of him, believing he would be rewarded with a full recovery. Unfortunately, despite his treatment working well in the early stages, Alex's cancer returned in late June and although he responded well again, he lost his six month battle and left us on Monday September 5th 2011.
Alex's service took place on September 14th 2011 at Hazel Grove United Reformed Church and he has been laid to rest in Sale Cemetery overlooking Walton Road park where he spent so many happy hours.
Alex touched so many people in such a short time and we are so very, very proud of him. Alex's family, his many friends his schools and everyone who knew him miss him terribly, losing Alex has had such a massive impact on our lives.
