In honour of Rosie’s 20th birthday, we are raising £20,000 in 2012 for The Young Person’s Unit, QE Hospital, Birmingham; The Willow Foundation; Little Princess Trust and Forget me Not Trust Children’s Hospice. If you want to help us achieve this then please buy something from our shop ; donate at http://www.justgiving.com/teams/TKOE20kchallenge or email theknockoneffect@live.co.uk and let us know how you are raising money.

And to repay the 30 people who saved Rosie’s life several times by donating blood, we have a bloodometer running, to get new, returning and regular blood donors to donate 30 units of blood in 2012. So far, we’ve achieved 35. Yay!

    This is great Rosie.
    I think you should do web design as a fall back on the acting 🙂

    I still like to keep up with this blog. Rosie was and is an inspiration to all young people and I am proud to be able to say I knew her, and loved her as everyone did. This september I’m holding a tea party in my flat for to raise money for cancer research, where people donate in return for tea and cake, and there will also be a cake auction. i wanted to do this to mark the year anniversary. Thinking of Team Kilburn always x

        I just wanted to send a message to say that in April I’m putting on a gig in Cheltenham to raise money for Cancer Research UK called KICK IT FOR CANCER. Through facebook promotion alone in the past week since the donations page has been up and running we have raised £190 already with months to go to reach our target of £1000. Rosie was dear to me and it was on her birthday that the idea struck me. I hope that she would be proud. x
