One of our parents, Mrs Fiona Baxter, is fund raising in aid of Muscular Dystrophy and we would like to help her as a school by donating the proceeds of our T-Set this Friday to this cause. We hope that you will consider sending in more than the usual 50p to help raise money for this charity!
Please see below a message from Fiona with details of her other fundraising efforts which include an amazing trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro!
"Harry was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy about 2 years ago and it is very hard to imagine that he is likely to be in a wheelchair by the time he is 10 years old as he is just like any other boisterous 7 year old boy!
I know that you don't know Harry or his family but they are friends of mine. Harry's parents are a real inspiration and work tirelessly to raise awareness and funds for the research into a cure or drugs that will prolong his life. They have even lobbied David Cameron to allow the release of a drug that is currently being tested.
I am hosting a coffee morning at my house on this Friday 22nd January. An opportunity to get together, natter and eat cake!!! And all in aid of a fantastic cause, all are welcome! The address is: 11 Queen Victoria Court, GU14 8AR. 9am to 12noon.
On Friday 5th February I am flying off to Tanzania to climb Mt Kilimanjaro!!! I have self-funded the trip for what will be the most physical and mental challenge of my life! And whilst I will no doubt benefit from such a life changing experience, I wanted Harry's family and their charity to also benefit.
Therefore I have been fundraising for Help4harry and have set up my own just giving page and I should be grateful if you would consider spreading the word about my challenge and sharing my online just giving link: https://www.justgiving.com/fionacbaxter "
