My story

[p]On April 4th 2017 Mum/Gran Gran/Gill sadly passed away. [/p][p]For 60 years, Mum dedicated her life to helping others and was always at her happiest when the people around her were happy and having fun. [/p][p]This page has been set up to maintain the legacy that Mum deserves. All money raised will be going to two charities that are incredibly close our family, and more importantly, Mum.[/p][p]Sadly, Mum’s Granddaughter Freya (my niece), suffers from Rett Syndrome, which is a rare genetic disorder that affects brain development, resulting in severe mental and physical disability. Although Freya is the most loved child in the world and is incredibly cheerful and happy, she will never walk or talk and will require full time care for the rest of her life.[/p][p]50% of all funds raised will go to Rett UK, who do fantastic work supporting families that are affected by Rett Syndrome.[/p][p]The other 50% will go towards Brimble Hill school in swindon, which Freya attends. It is vital that Freya and other children have the support they need.[/p][p]Although the saying ‘every little helps’ is correct, I want to do better and help fund significant changes for both of these charities, hence the ambitious target of £100,000 with no time limit.[/p][p]Watch this space for events and activities that will help drive us towards our target and give Mum the legacy that she deserves![/p][p]Thank you all so much for your support. Mum touched the lives of so many and this is apparent by the love and generosity from every single one of you.[/p][p]Love to all,[/p][p]Giorgio[/p]
