DOG owners will be taking part in a family fun day in memory of a toddler who died in 2015 from a rare genetic condition.

The Devine Paws Dog Show and Family Fun Day will take place at Morgan Recreation Ground in Crowthorne on August 3 in memory of Skyla Elizabeth Head.

Skyla from Crowthorne passed away when she was just 2 and a half years old and her Mum Corrine and Sister Kayla decided to run a fundraiser in memory of the little girl.

The money collected from the charity dog show will be donated to the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service, which supported Skyla during her short life.

The sisters, who run a dog salon in Crowthorne, held the Devine Paws charity fundraiser in 2016 and in 2018 and have so far raised nearly £4,000 for the children's hospice.

Corrine Harrison, said: “I am extremely proud to be this marvellous little girl’s mummy even though she could no longer be with us her memory still lives on with every little thing we do.

"What she taught us as a family is invaluable. It's days like doing the dog show which give me opportunities to talk about her as if she was still here and the thought of giving something back should be the meaning of life itself.

"I miss my little girl but thank her everyday for who she made me."

Families will be able to get involved with activities, games, face painting a bouncy castle as well as food and drink as well as enjoying a whole variety of dogs.

Julia Philipson, community fundraiser at Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service, added: “They are truly an amazing family and we are so grateful for all that they do for our charity. We hope everyone has a fantastic day at this year’s Devine Paws.”

The hospice in Maidenhead provides support to children with life-limiting conditions and their families, across Berkshire.
