EMOTIONAL teenager Aidan Meli is urging more people to support a hospice which cared for his dying grandmother in her final days.

The 15-year-old was one of about 500 children to complete last night’s Starlit Walk in Portsmouth, which was in aid of The Rowans.

He was wearing his ‘nana’s’ wedding dress for the event in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard.

Now, on what would have been the 65th birthday of his beloved grandmother, Sue Mills – who died last year – the Milton lad is appealing to others to support the Purbrook-based institution.

He said: ‘The Rowans did so much for her in her last days.

‘Everyone deserves the treatment that she got while she was at The Rowans.’
