Supporters flocked to The White Hart in South Mimms and enjoyed a raffle, fire engine, sponsored head shaving and tug-of-war.
There was also a bouncy castle, face painting, live music, and a unicorn visit.
“It couldn’t have run smoother,” Jo-Ann told the Welwyn Hatfield Times. “The kids were really happy they got to see the fire engine called out. It was just a really, really good day.”
She said that it was lovely to see everyone soaking up the joyous atmosphere, adding “Obviously what I had to do it for was sad, but it’s nice to know I have so many good friends and family around me.”
