Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.
My daughter Alicia suffers from Ataxia, she was 10 in May and was diagnosed with this at the age of 2, She is loved by all of her family so much she is our "little precious", all of us are praying and trying our hardest to raise as much money as we possibly can to help some how and some way in the future find a cure for Ataxia.
we have fundraising going on here there and everywhere Including:
BBQ and cake afternoon at Nanny's house. - This is delish!
A pamper evening where all the family and friends come and show their support by having face masks and pedicures.
We also raise money by holiding an anual fete. we have a BBQ, bouncy castle, tombola, bric a brac stall, childrens toys/clothes stalls and many more these itrems are donated by family friends and local people.
Ongoing we are collecting at the Edward Herbert Building Loughborough University which the staff and customers kindly give.
All the above events are being hold on a yearly basis - with hopefully more ideas along the way.
'Ataxia' means ‘absence of order’. People with ataxia have problems of co-ordination. This is because parts of the nervous system that normally control co-ordination and balance are affected.
Ataxia UK aims to support all people affected by ataxia; people with the condition, their familes, carers and friends. The charity funds research into developing safe, effective treatments with the ultimate goal of finding a cure for the ataxias. In the meantime Ataxia UK helps people to live with ataxia by providing a range of services that are not available anywhere else, including an advocacy service..
Your support in this challenge will be very much appreciated!
