I felt the charity is something that I’d be proud to raise money for as the work you do for young children and their families is truly inspiring. As a young child between the ages of 3-13, I had numerous visits to the hospital and surgery (however in my case, it was simply for my deaf ear, not anything close to the conditions the children you work with have to experience). I’m also a keen artist/crafts person, so to see creativity as a form of much needed therapy for young people at a difficult time is very touching. Also in the past two years, my auntie (also my Godmother and fellow artist(!)) has been diagnosed with Lupus. Admittedly this was, and to some extent still is, a condition I know very little about. To see your work help young children who are also going through a condition that’s close to my heart means a lot too."
