Teens Tie-Dye Sensation For The Young Persons Unit At QE
Gargi Paneesha is 14 years old and throughout the height of the pandemic she decided to make good use of her time by designing bespoke tie-dye facemasks with proceeds going to support the Young Persons Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
Gargi has told us that along with her friends at King Edwards VI High School they were able to raise a fantastic £256 to support 16-24 year olds going through cancer treatment. This kind donation will enable the hospital charity to continue supporting our young patients by funding activities such as pizza nights and breakfast clubs to help lift morale and also a specialist teacher so that young patients can continue their studies whilst being treated.
We are incredibly grateful to Gargi and all of those involved in the making, selling and purchasing of these masks, along with King Edwards VI High School for supporting this brilliant fundraising project.
