I heard about this brilliant young girl Chloe yesterday and since then I’ve coming up with all sorts of ideas to make sure she raises enough money to get her life saving cancer treatment in the US.
Chloe Balloqui is a beautiful 3 year old girl from Pimlico who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in October last year. Following nearly 7 months in hospital, she has come to the end of any treatment the NHS can provide and desperately need access the pioneering treatment in Michigan. To get Chloe there it’s going to cost £100K and it’s needed before the deadline of 10th January 2015.
I’m really determined to help Chloe out and pushing for everyone to get involved. I’ve just donated £1000 myself for Chloe, the Pimlico team and their friends/family are in the process of adding their donations and I’m now contacting all plumbers in the UK to donate just £1 each. To add to that, at Pimlico Plumbers we’ll be donating £1 for every single job we do as of 1st December. I’ll be encouraging our customers to do the same, and I’m sure our 180 vans that will be sporting a picture of Chloe on each side will spur more Londoners to get involved and really get those donations coming in.
That’s not it, I’m also going to be organising a big charity auction to take place at our official grand opening of Pimlico Plumbing & Heating Merchants with Lisa Snowdon! The exact date is to be confirmed but it will be on the week commencing 15th December. To kick start the auction, I’ve been contacted by Damian Sablon -Director of A&A Construction Group – who are kindly donating a corporate box for a match day with hospitality at Brighton and Hove Football Club to be auctioned. Of course I’ll be auctioning the popular ‘Pimlico Plumber for the day’ worth £800 but please get in contact with any prizes you can offer.
Everyone please get donating and help Chloe receive the lifesaving treatment she desperately needs. She's recently reached 1/4 of the amount needed but there's a long way to goThanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
