STAFF at an Edgewater fabric and craft shop will host a community fundraising day for one of their peers this weekend.

Spotlight store manager Kelly Corrigan and colleagues are organising the April 29 event to help Natalie Welch, who was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer,

“We hope the community can give generously to help Natalie and her family and enjoy all the activities we have planned,” she said.

“Natalie has been such a valued team member for so long, we want to raise as much money as possible for her Go Fund Me page to fulfil her wish of seeing Paris.”

The fundraiser runs from 11am-3pm and will include a sausage sizzle, bouncing castle, face painters, children’s fun station, lucky dips and a live busker.

Local volunteers and staff are donating their hair to raise money, with a hairdresser doing the cuts and shaves about 1pm.

There will be donation tins at all cash registers in store for donations.
