A Beckenham mum who has been left devestated by the death of her six-year-old daughter is raising money for the hospice that made her final Christmas so special.

Lynn Baker's little girl Lucy had been suffering lung problems since she was nine-months old and died in 2014.

Lynn will always remember Lucy's final Christmas at the Demelza Hospice Care for Children, in Eltham, when they opened up the hospice especially for her.

Lynn, 42, said: "It's usually shut but they opened up for our family so that Lucy had somewhere to stay.

"They made it all Christmassy in Lucy’s room with a tree and decorations.

“Lucy didn’t go to bed until six in the morning that day because she was so excited.

“Demelza did us a big breakfast spread and then when Lucy woke up they dressed like Santa and gave us all presents, and the staff sat next to us as we had our dinner. They just made it nice.

“They gave her a message from Santa, so she thought that he knew about her and where she was. She loved it.”

Lynn, of Beckenham High Street, is running a raffle and a tombola in aid of the hospice at the This is Christmas. Beckenham pop-up event, in Beckenham Road, this Sunday (December 3).

She added: “I used to like Christmas, but since my daughter passed away I don’t really like it as much as I used to.

“I still miss buying her stuff. She used to like leaving the carrot out for the reindeer and the mince pie out for Father Christmas. Obviously I can’t do that anymore.”

The pop-up event runs from 10am until 5pm.

Prizes up for grabs in Lynn's tombola include massages at beauty shops, quasar and paintball sessions, a cookery lesson, and meals for two at restaurants in Beckenham as well as vouchers.
