Petroc Student Union is delighted to announce that ALL profits from our upcoming Autumn Tech Dance will go to the amazing Everything Ellie. The local charity was set up in memory of North Devon’s Ellie Easton, who very sadly passed away in March 2015 to secondary Leukaemia Relapse aged 16, following a 2 year battle with Teenage Cancer.
As the Everything Ellie website says: “Everything Ellie hopes to make every day a ‘blue sky day’ by providing a simple day at the seaside, a break away from the hospital rooms for young people or Parents/Guardians with young families undergoing treatment for long term, life threatening or terminal illnesses such as Cancers & Leukaemia’s.”

Ellie’s mum Jay Easton, a founder of the charity, said: “It is amazing and fitting that Petroc Student Union are supporting both a local charity and in memory of a school friend for many of you. The effects their year group has experienced will make the event personal. It makes me very proud that Ellie is still thought about and I wish you all an amazing night”.
Sophie Isaac, Everything Ellie Events Coordinator, co-founder and trustee, said: “We really are touched that you have chosen and are supporting our charity.
“It is very difficult when something so awful happens knowing what you can do to help and this charity has certainly helped us all focus and has made a difference to many families already.
