Elisha Hudson is a well-known face around town, having worked at Halsey House and recently being crowned Miss Norfolk. But there’s a lot more to Elisha than meets the eye. In her monthly columns, Elisha will be keeping us up to date on what she’s got planned.
At 24 years old, last year I was diagnosed with a glioma brain tumour. One year later I have the busiest year ahead of me. In between my 6 monthly scans I have lots of fundraising events going on but also achieving my goals. I would love for you all to keep up to date and enjoy my events in the upcoming year.
I will be raising money throughout the year for my main charity Brain Tumour Research, but there are also events going on that I’m participating in for other charity’s such as Headway, Nelsons Journey and Cancer research.
After being diagnosed I honestly thought that was it, my world had been turned upside down in a 10min appointment at Addenbrooks. It was devastating news not only for me but my loved ones too. I couldn’t let it get the better of me though, I’m grateful for every day, I’ve met so many amazing people through my journey and Its giving me that push to really pursue my dreams.
I’m currently having 6 months scans to keep an eye on it as it’s in a delicate place to treat it straight away, I am still working full time at Halsey House care home in Cromer. So looking at life in a very positive way which I encourage everyone to do to!
Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What’s more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 then any other cancer… yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease. – written by Brain Tumour Research.
All my events I will be organising are local to North Norfolk. After my winning of Miss Norfolk 2017 and the success of my last charity night at Woodlands Holiday Park, Trimingham raising £3600 for Brain Tumour Research. It has inspired me to raise more money and organise events that local businesses and the community can get involved with. In upcoming events I will be encouraging locals to join me in raising money and I will be looking for business to be willing to sponsor or donate raffle/auction prizes. Please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
I will be doing a monthly column in Enjoy Cromer More to keep you up to date with all my events taking place this year. Not only am I currently Miss Norfolk until September but I am also Face of Norwich going to compete in Face of Europe & the world in November 2018. This will also include a lot of charity work which I’m very excited about.
19th May 2018 is my next main fundraising event, Charity Spring Ball in aid of Brain Tumour Research sponsored by our local Davies Fish Shop on Garden street, Cromer. The ball will take place at The old Rectory Hotel at Crostwick at £25pp including a two course meal & disco. The charity ball is Adults only. I have never known tickets to sell so fast, my phone has not stopped its amazing. An amazing excuse to get dressed up to the max at the Black Tie Event. Limited tickets left so please get in contact via Facebook ‘Elisha’s Events’ or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
