“Grandfather loved to make people laugh – fundraising by telling jokes is the perfect way to remember him” – 11-year-old Hannah Noonan

Losing a grandparent is never easy and some children find it more difficult to cope than others. But when Hannah Noonan’s grandfather died earlier this year, she turned her grief into something positive by launching a fundraiser to raise awareness and funds for research into idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the condition that claimed his life.

During the first lockdown, my little brother (Mikey) and I shared jokes on Instagram to cheer everyone up,” she says. “Grandfather was our biggest fan and always sent us jokes to use – he was great at telling them and loved making people laugh. So I thought it would be a good idea to do something similar to raise awareness of the illness Grandpa was living with before he died and came up with #HaveALaughForPF.
