THE charity set up in memory of ten-year-old Jayden Orr could soon reopen in another premises after they were forced to leave their shop by a landlord.
Kathleen Orr, who set up Jayden’s Rainbow following the tragic death of her son last year, recently told the Tele how she was being forced out of premises in Greenock town centre.
Since then she was been overwhelmed by public support and received a number of alternative offers.
The family – who are raising cash to put defibrillators in every school – are holding another fundraiser this weekend.
Kathleen said: “Since we were told to leave the shop has been busier than ever.
“We have had regular supporters coming in and they are really sad we are closing.
“We have had offers of other premises and so much support from people.”
Since setting up their Tele-backed campaign two months ago, Kathleen, her husband John, daughter Kerri and son Declan have worked tirelessly to raise funds.
They want to make sure that there is a defibrillator in every school and in all public places.
They recently organised a ball to celebrate their son and raised more than £2,300 for the campaign.
They have lined up a number of fundraisers planned throughout the year.
This weekend’s event is a tabletop sale on Sunday.
It runs from 1.30-3.30pm in Boglestone Community Centre, Port Glasgow, with clothes, chairs, games, toys, prams, books, DVDs and more on sale.
There will also be tea, coffee and cake.
Tables cost £10 to hire.
