Thanks to Katie!
We were humbled to receive, out of the blue, a letter from one of Katie's old schoolfriends.
Extracts from the letter, from another Katie. Katie Atkinson, can be viewed if you click on more....
The letter from Katie reads "I was a friend of Katie's at Westcliff and I just wanted to message you to let you know that she still holds a very strong place in my heart."
"Recently, my boyfriend was in Intake J(b) for police recruitment in Essex Police and they were asked to take part in a community piece to raise money for charity. He is very aware of Katie's story as I so frequently talk about her and my school memories with her, so he put forward Little Havens as a charity suggestion. Not surprisingly, the whole intake were so inspired that it was the winning choice."
"They carried out quiz nights, sweepstakes, sponsored activities and so on in an attempt to raise as much money as possible in such a short time and I just wanted to let you know they ended up raising about £1500 (all in the memory of Katie!!)"
"I know that Friends of Katie is constantly working on raising money for Little Havens and just wanted to let you know of this achievement by Essex Police."
