Service being held to remember Evelyn Smith five years after her death

A SERVICE is being held to remember a much-loved Warwick girl five years after her death.

Evelyn Smith died from Bacterial Traceitis – an infection of the windpipe – at just seven-years-old after doctors failed to spot the seriousness of her illness.

A service is being held at St Mary’s Church in Warwick in memory of Evelyn on Wednesday September 12 at 2pm – the day before the fifth anniversary of her death. All are welcome.

A teacher from Coten End School and Warwick deputy mayor Neale Murphy will speak at the service about Evelyn’s Gift – a charity set up in the youngster’s name by mum Helen.

Tim Morris, practice manager at Waterside Medical Centre, will also speak about Evelyn’s legacy in terms of charity Warwickshire Hearts – which provides emergency medical response to 999 calls.

There will also be information about Be Happy Day – an initiative asking everyone to carry out an act of kindness on what would have been Evelyn’s birthday, December 1.
