Spa raises cash for infant stricken by meningitis

A SPA manager is hosting an event to help raise money for a baby suffering with meningitis.

Becky Doyle, of Gomersal Park Hotel’s Dream Spa, is putting on a coffee morning in the spa’s bistro with help from sales manager Mandy Gettings.

The pair are offering mini-facials and massages at £5 each, alongside coffee, tea and home-made cakes. 

All proceeds will go directly to the family of 10-month-old Kia Gott, who was diagnosed with meningitis last month when she was rushed into hospital after she had developed a rash over her face, neck and chest.

It is feared little Kia will require the amputation of all four limbs.

A Justgiving page has been set up to support the family in paying for the adaptations they will need in their home, and both Becky and Mandy are hoping to make as much as they can to add to the almost £25,000 raised so far.

Becky and her husband Colin Doyle, a goalkeeper at Bradford City, have already donated £1,000 to the fund.

Their son, Liam, now seven, also suffered from bacterial meningitis and they have raised £180,000 via their charity, Liam’s Smiles, to help people who have experienced the disease.

Becky (pictured right) and and Mandy (left) are encouraging people to donate cakes and raffle prizes for the event, as well as coming along to help raise awareness of meningitis.

The coffee morning will be held at Gomersal Park Hotel’s Dream Spa - on Moor Lane, Gomersal - on Wednesday November 22 from 10am to 2pm. 

Colin Doyle and other Bradford City footballers will also be attending.
