Jaime told the Target: "My grandfather was like a dad to me because my dad passed away a long time ago.
"He's always been like the male figure in my life.
"I spent a lot of time with him, looking after him, bathing him etc.
"I went down to Portsmouth as often as I could to look after him. He became very ill and deteriorated very quickly."
The fundraising event will get underway at 12 noon with various activities including Tarot readings, a bouncy castle, barbecue, face painting, music from solo singer Martin Goodson and a raffle with various prizes donated from local businesses.
The William Alvey School, which is attended by Jaime's nine-year-old son Lewis Brian Rowland, will also be holding a non-uniform day on November 1 to help raise funds.
Jaime thanked local businesses for their support in providing raffle prizes and also the Rose and Crown for hosting the event.
She added: "A lot of my family are coming up from Portsmouth for the event.
"It's going to be really hard but at the same time we are giving something back to the charities that supported us.
"The Rowans have been absolutely amazing people that supported myself and family all the way through."
