Fun day raises £1.5k in Archie’s memory

A fun day held in Ruskington village hall to fundraise in memory of a little boy has raised £1,500. The Lullaby family fun day was held to raise awareness of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC). Baby Archie died from the condition in 2016, aged just 13 months. The event was organised by Archie’s mum Nicole Rolls, and friend Laura Howard - and included various stalls and fun games for children.
