Avril took a stand at Reading University Freshers’ Fayre – helped in the afternoon by Richard. It was a very busy event and leaflets raising awareness of carbon monoxide poisoning were handed out to many students and several carbon monoxide detectors sold at a reduced cost.
Avril took a stand at St George’s University Freshers’ Fayre – with the help of her daughter Lydia (with baby Alessandro). Leaflets on the dangers of carbon monoxide were given to interested students and a quantity of carbon monoxide detectors were sold at a reduced cost.
Richard’s sister Helen Wells and friends have arranged an exciting and fun Quiz Night at the Blue Mountain Golf course in Binfield, Berkshire on Sunday 27th May from 6pm-midnight to raise funds for the KHMT but also for Amelia Saunders who was diagnosed at the beginning of February with an incurable, inoperable brain tumour. Amelia is 3 years old and lives with her mum, dad and sister Charlotte in Reading, Berkshire.
Money raised will go to help with an alternative treatment – that provided by the Burzynski clinic in Houston, Texas. Other children have already been there and received treatment – some of whom are alive and well today. The treatment is expensive, with no guarantees, but represents a potential ray of light for Amelia’s parents right now.
Space is limited but if you’d like to arrange a table of 10 ticket’s are £15 each – email firstname.lastname@example.org
