On Sunday 14th July 2019 Alison, Vanessa and Penny attended the ladies day lunch to raise funds for the Emily Ash Trust at Selsdon Park Hotel.  Around 100 ladies attended the event to raise money for the trust which included a 3 course lunch, stalls selling clothes, handbags and jewellery, various games, a raffle with numerous prizes including Tea at the Ritz and an auction for items such as a luxury two night hotel stay.

Most importantly, we learned of a young boy called ‘Harry’ and his story after being diagnosed with Leukaemia a couple of years ago. His Mum who also attended the lunch, explained how hard it was for them as a family to deal with the sudden diagnosis and how difficult life became for them.  She described how the trust was amazing and that the simple things they provide to help the whole family made a big difference to their lives.  Harry who is still having ongoing treatment is making good progress and is a very happy loving little boy.  She said the family days out and the Winter Wonderland that the Trust put on for the whole family is a great time to relax and have some sense of normality.   When attending these family days, Harry’s mum now likes to help other parents whose children are at an earlier stage in the diagnosis to provide them with a ray of hope that things will get better.

It was yet another amazing day of raising money for a wonderful cause and to help the Emily Ash Trust!
