You may recall that last month we shared details of 7-year-old Eliza who was selling her unwanted toys to raise funds for Alopecia UK. Well Eliza and her family are not stopping there! Mum Hannah is organising 'Elizachella', a family friendly afternoon festival raising funds and awareness for Alopecia UK. We asked Hannah to tell us more..

How did the idea for Elizachella come about?

Myself and Eliza both love festivals. Eliza attended her first one in 2021 and she still, to this day, describes it as the best weekend ever! When Eliza said she wanted to raise as much money and awareness for Alopecia UK as possible, I began thinking of something that we could do, and then a festival came into my head. We put pen to paper and, with the help of Eliza's auntie, we have organised a day that we are all so excited for! The support and response we have had from local businesses and family and friends is just amazing! 

What can people expect from the afternoon?

Expect raffles, auctions, magic, DJs, live music, good food, laughs, smiles, colour, fun, lots of glitter & sparkles, surprises and, most of all, lots of dancing! 

What part of the event is Eliza most looking forward to?

Eliza is most looking forward to dancing in the disco tent, seeing her name in lights and the bouncy castles! 

Where and when is it taking place?

Elizachella is taking place on Sunday 9th July 2023, at Kislingbury Cricket Club, Northamptonshire, from 12-6pm.
