Team story

[p]To celebrate the birth of Bobby Jay Scott we thought it would be a lovely idea to donate to a charity close to Kimberley's heart and leave messages for Kimberley, Justin and the baby.[/p] [p]CMV, or Cytomegalovirus, is a common virus that can infect people of all ages. Once CMV is in a person’s body, it stays there for life. Most healthy adults and children will have no signs or symptoms and no long-term effects from CMV. It can, however, be very dangerous to unborn babies.  Congenital CMV is one of the main causes of children being born with permanent disabilities. 1 in 1000 babies will be damaged by CMV. That's almost 1000 babies every year. [/p] [p]CMV Action receives no government funding and is a relatively new and small charity. Donations will go to raising much needed awareness of CMV, producing support material for parents and resources for health professionals.[/p] [p]Kimberley recently said of her decision to become a Patron of CMV;[/p] [p][i]"For me, it’s personal, especially now being pregnant myself.   The CMV virus affected my friend’s son, which means he has permanent disabilities.[/i][/p] [p][i]I have always wanted to do something for Christian and particularly the charity CMV Action, set up to support families affected by CMV and to raise awareness of the CMV virus.[/i][/p] [p][i]Congenital CMV is one of the main causes of children being born with birth defects in the UK but pregnant women are not routinely told about it, nor the simple steps they can take to protect themselves."[/i][/p] [p]Kimberley recently appeared on All Star Mr & Mrs and All Star Family Fortunes and very generously donated her winnings to CMV Action.[/p] [p]We know that, like Kimberley, her fans are also very generous and we know that most fans would like to send a gift to the new baby. We thought this would be a perfect way to combine both; supporting an important charity and a way that we can all "give".[/p] [p]Any donation would be very welcome by CMV Action and if you donate, please remember to leave a message for Kimberley, Justin and the baby.[/p] [p]Thank you![/p] [p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p] [p][/p]
