Speaking at the presentation Stephanie Wallace, said: “Thank you so much to my beautiful brave little princess for inspiring so many amazing people to fundraise for this amazing charity, Daisy Lodge.

“For us as a family going through this terrible journey with Emily, Daisy Lodge has been such a support to us and tonight I would like to say a special thank you to our neighbours John Dan and Bernie O’Hare and all their family and close friends who organised an amazing weekend, raising a colossal £18,962.54.

“I would also like to thank our other neighbours Peter and Ann McEvoy for doing a tractor run on Boxing Day and raising £1,000.

“Everyone who attended Daisy Lodge last night have helped Emily raise lots of money for this amazing facility, but I would also like to thank everyone in our community near and far for every penny that they have donated to Daisy Lodge since Emily’s diagnosis in September 2015.”

Stephanie added: “Through this journey so far, Emily’s daddy Sean and all his concert goers and music connections have raised a massive £30,000. From the bottom of our hearts, as Emily’s family, we would like to thank you all so much.”
