West Bridgford teacher aims to raise £5,000 to launch charity in name of her daughter

The page aims to raise £5,000 to set up the charity ‘Olivia’s Smile’ – providing hands on support to children and the school community following the death of a pupil.

Aimee Wood, a teacher at West Bridgford Junior School aims to raise the money to launch a charity Olivia’s Smile.

Olivia, 5, was taken into hospital for surgery in February 2020.

She was believed to be recovering but then suffered a sudden cardiac arrest in her hospital bed.

At the time of publishing the page has raised over £2,000 of its target.

The fund-raising page reads:

‘For those of you that know me, you are likely to already know about my aspirations to set up a charity in memory of Olivia but you may have come across this page without knowing about me and ‘my story’.

‘In true Aimee style, I felt an introduction video (below) was the best way to share my new venture to help children and school communities following the death of a pupil.

‘Every single penny donated via this page will 100% directly help in setting up and launching the charity and help children and school communities following the death of a pupil.

‘All registered charities abide by a total transparency policy and although not yet registered, I will still ensure the same.

‘Watch this space – I am so excited about this and hope I can pull it off. Thanks so much to my amazing family and friends who are supporting me along this crazy mission of mine – I feel sure I can help make a difference to children and school communities following the death of a pupil and I really hope I can make this work and do Olivia proud. I’m determined to try and help people keep their smiles amid their sadness!
