Emily’s fundraiser for Alopecia UK
Fundraising for Alopecia UK
Verified by JustGiving
I’m Emily and I’m 10 years old. I’ve had alopecia for the last two years. Alopecia uk has helped me so much! We have been on residential trips and met lots of friends and other children and adults with alopecia. I wanted to do a challenge to raise some money for this charity. I’m dragging a long my 6 year old brother, mum and dad to walk up to the top of pen y fan in Brecon Beacons.
