I am Zoe Edmenson and I have organised a fundraising event in support of the Muir Maxwell Trust. The reason for the event is because my six year old son has recently been given a special epilepsy alarm system, which is much needed. Each alarm costs £500 and is unavailable on the NHS. My son is now able to sleep in his own room for the first time in his life and i also can sleep, knowing that if he takes a fit, the alarm lets me know within 7 seconds. It has made such a huge difference to our lives.
We are organising an "Action packed show" on the 18th March at the Corporation club, Hartlepool. The show includes various performances from local talent, including Lewis Laking (who performed on TV with Russell Watson) and UK hip hop semi finalists Ruff Diamond.
All money raised will be donated to the Muir Maxwell trust, we are hoping to do a raffle and have some prizes donated by businesses, we will be selling tickets for £3 each. Any help available wil be hugely appreciated, cash donations or prizes for the raffle. Our aim is to raise enough funds to help another child out with one of these life saving alarms.
Zoe's fundraising event was a huge success and raised £2,200 in support of MMT and everyone here at the Trust is incredibly grateful to Zoe and to all those who supported this fantastic event - Thank you!
