Two Manjimup 12-year-olds are hitting the pavement later this month to raise money for Princess Margaret Hospital.

Ella Reeve and Lilli Edwards have decided to walk around Big Brook Dam for the hospital after having both been helped by the hospital.

Lilli spent some time at the hospital, as did Ella’s brother.

“It opened our eyes about what a little bit of money could do for them,” Lilli said.

“We wanted to help out a little bit,” Ella said.

Before the end of the year, Ella and Lilli held a raffle outside the Manjimup Newsagency to raise awareness of their walk.

The produce included in the winner’s hamper was donated by local businesses and Ella said there had been a “very good” response from the public.

“People told us about their own time with Princess Margaret Hospital or about their own walks for awareness,” she said.

Lilli said some people did not even buy a raffle ticket, but donated to their cause.

The 3km walk will take place on January 28, with the girls leaving for their walk at 9am.

They welcomed people to come along to support them as they head out on their walk and said there would be a sausage sizzle.

People can still donate to Ella and Lilli’s Walk for Awareness by calling 9772 4243.
