A mother whose eight-year-old daughter died last year is organising a donation of Easter eggs to the children’s ward at Northampton General Hospital in her memory.

Laura Coles’s daughter, Leaha, suffered from a rare brain disorder and received regular treatment at the hospital for a range of related health conditions.

Leaha Munn died on March 26 last year aged eight-and-a-half

Leaha passed away on March 26, 2015, and her mum is now organising a donation of Easter eggs for patients and staff on Easter Saturday as a way of remembering her daughter’s life.

Ms Coles is appealing for people to donate Easter eggs or any other gifts, which will be delivered by a fleet of motorcyclists travelling from Rushden to Northampton.

Ms Coles said: “We spent a lot of time in the children’s ward as Leaha suffered from a range of health issues and the staff became like a second family to us.

“My son Charlie has also spent time on Paddington ward as he was born prematurely. It is a way of giving something back to them.”

The drop-off point for donations are Sapphire Scaffolding Ltd, Cornhill Close, Lodge Farm Ind Est, Duston, Northampton, and Simpson and Weekly Estate Agents, 30 High Street, Rushden.

Laura is also willing to carry out collections if you contact her on laura.leahamunn@hotmail.co.uk.

The Easter egg run will be leaving from the Needle and Awl pub, Northampton Road, Rushden, at 10.30am on Easter Saturday to make its way to Paddington ward.

If any bikers would like to join the run then they are encouraged to arrive at 10am.
