A FAMILY who have pledged to raise £1million in honour of a “beautiful” mother are inviting people to their charity events.

Sue Blasotta, from Winchmore Hill, died just six weeks after she was told she had a brain tumour in January 2011.

But as they were coming to terms with their grief, her dedicated family decided to do something to make sure her death was not in vain.

Her dad, David Taylor, and siblings, Kathleen, Angela and Nicola, set up In Sue’s Name earlier this year and have already raised an incredible £45k.

They are now holding a golf day on September 15 at the Enfield Golf Club and an Italian night on October 20 at the Penridge Suite, Southgate.

Her dad said: “The generosity from people has been absolutely amazing and it’s all local people. We’re so thankful to have the community behind us, even as a small charity.

“The success we’ve had proves everyone has got good hearts.”

Doctors discovered she grade 4 glioblastoma multiformem, the most aggressive and incurable type of brain tumour, she was given just six months to a year to live.

But she died on January 8, 2011 – just two days before her beloved dad’s birthday – leaving behind children Sasha and Daniel.

She never got to meet her granddaughter, named Alleya-Sue, who is now 13 months.

Before her death, she was an active fundraiser and took part in Race for Life and a charity skydive.

Mr Taylor added: “It took me two years to set this charity up and I know it’s what she would have wanted. When you have a beautiful girl like that, who spent her whole life helping others, you have to do something.

“I want her to know she was loved. If she knew what we were doing she’d tell me – come on dad, you can make it to £1million, don’t sit around.

“When I see her again I wanted her to say well done – but not until I’ve done what I promised and raised £1million.”
