A CHARITY concert is set to be held in memory of ‘the nicest, sweetest person you could ever meet’.

An event organised by Chloe Bostel will be in memory of her sister Ellie, pictured, who lost a short battle with cancer aged 23 last year.

Titled Elfest, the event will be hosted at the Old White Hart, in London Road, and will feature local acts playing a range of cover songs.

The 28-year-old wanted to organise the event as a way to remember her sister after they hosted a highly successful Hook Oxjam event in July 2012 together.

Chloe told The Gazette: “We have always really liked our music and supported the local bands, so it was a big part of what we would do.

“Ellie had a lot of anxiety but she always enjoyed going to gigs.”

Ellie was raised in Hook and was a truly local girl, having gone to Hook Infants and Junior Schools and then Robert May’s School.

She could even be seen walking around the village and surrounding fields with plenty of dogs in tow as part of her job as a dog walker.

Chloe described her sister as the “purest person you could ever meet.”

She added: “She was just the nicest sweetest person who always wanted to help others.”

The concert in Hook is raising money for Basingstoke hospital’s intensive care and high dependency units.

ElFest will get underway at noon on Saturday, 21 July with entry costing £1 and will be raising money for the units as this is where Ellie spent time during her treatment.

Chloe added: “During her time there they went above and beyond to make sure she was as comfortable as possible and did everything they could to help her battle the disease.

“Ellie herself was a strong, determined and incredibly kind and caring girl and her family know that she would want to do something to say thank you to all the exceptional people who looked after her.”
