I feel I must pay tribute to a special young lady who touched our hearts with her sparkle and spirit over the panto period at the Kings Theatre in Southsea.
I work as a volunteer there and 10-year-old Chloe Challoner inspired us all with her courage and determination to fight cancer.
The gala night which was put together in days to help raise funds to send her for vital treatment in America was a special and moving occasion. To see Chloe come on at the end in Cinderella’s carriage was a poignant moment.
Sadly Chloe lost her battle and died on January 20, but she will definitely live on in all our hearts.
As her funeral takes place today, our thoughts are with Chloe’s family and loved ones.
