General manager Anne Coleman said: “Olivia is such an inspirational young lady, with an amazing outlook and has the most beautiful smile.

“She’s very well-loved within the community and we wanted to honour her in the best possible way.

“Olivia has been through so much, which is why on Easter Sunday we’re holding a charity fundraiser to help pay for her to go on holiday once her treatments have finished.

“Olivia is such a caring and grateful individual, with a bubbling and friendly personality, and it felt right we gave her something to say thanks for being the incredible young lady she is.”
