Team story

[p]Well -we have done it!!! A whopping 18 inches each donated!! & We are still open for sponsors!![/p][p]We are raising money online here for the [b]Rainbow Trust Children's Charity [/b]and offline donations will go to[b] Spread a Smile -[/b] two[b] [/b]lovely charities close to our hearts, as they support our little 1 year old niece Alice, who has Bilateral Retinoblastoma.[/p][p]Retinoblastoma is a rare but aggressive form of eye cancer which affects babies and very young children. Have you noticed; white eye or glow in the pupil, squint, red or swollen eye, change in iris colour, no red eye in a photo, deterioration of vision? There may be no other visible signs. Please take one minute to familiarise yourself with this guide to the signs and symptoms from the [url=https://chect.org.uk/about-retinoblastoma-2/#section_one]Childhood Eye Cancer Trust[/url]. Early diagnosis is key.[/p][p]We will be cutting our hair and donating it to the [b]Little Princess Trust -[/b] they provide real hair wigs for children who have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses. [/p][p]The knotting process at the top of the wig alone takes 4 inches in length, so we are aiming to donate at least 12 inches each, to provide a very brave little person somewhere with some hair and hopefully make their day a little brighter.[/p][p]Rainbow Trust provide bespoke support for families who have a child with a serious illness, by offering an invaluable range of services.[/p][p]Simple things like taking a train to the hospital and exposing the child to all the germs which comes with this, could potentially be life threatening for children with suppressed immunity. Rainbow Trust can drive the family to the hospital and offer practical & emotional support during their time there (as well as at home), helping families through a stressful time and allowing parents to take a much appreciated short break every now and again. [/p][p]Spread a smile exist to do just that. Their fantastic team of entertainers including magicians, face-painters, artists, singers and fairies visit young people in hospital and are trained to know just what to do to get a smile out of everyone they see.[/p][p]We are very grateful to the Rainbow Trust and Spread a Smile as they continue to support Alice (and the whole family) through her journey.[/p][p]https://rainbowtrust.org.uk/[/p][p]https://spreadasmile.org[/p][p]www.littleprincesses.org.uk[/p][p]https://chect.org.uk/[/p][p][br][/p]
