On October 3rd, Alice and Ellen are organising a coffee afternoon to raise vital funds for MDS UK!
The event is in honour of their Great-Aunt, Anne Hoye- a well-known member of our community- who passed away from MDS recently.
They have planned to hold a raffle to encourage maximum donations and have kindly been donated a bungee jump- to name one prize!
Alice and Ellen said to us:
“Our Great-Aunt found the support of MDS UK invaluable, attending support groups, receiving advice and support for her and her new friends.
“Although the treatment sadly did not work for out Aunty Anne, we know she felt happy she would be able to help future MDS patients.
“We know she would want to carry on supporting this fantastic charity and would like to fulfil her wish.”
While cash will be collected on the day, Anne’s daughter, Lisa Southon, continues to raise funds in her Mother’s memory via JustGiving.
If you know the family or simply want to support Anne’s last wish, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ljsouthon to donate as much as you can!
MDS UK would like to say a big thank to the whole family for continuing to raise funds in what’s been a difficult time for them.
