Today was the first event hosted by Touchstone raising money for our charity.

They are also a charity but each year they chose another cause to raise funds for and we are the one they have chosen.

They have organised two events the first being an afternoon of fun and entertainment at their base near St James hospital in Leeds. They have a Twitter account and looking at the pictures and videos they have uploaded it was a great afternoon of fun and laughter.

They managed to raise an amazing £298.53.

Thank You doesn't convey enough how we feel about the effort they are putting into their events to raise money for us and the families we support.

Their next event is going to take place on the 8th July at Roundhay Park, Leeds. They will be doing a sponsored walk with many of them completing it in fancy dress. We will be going along to lend our support and cheer them on. Please come along to show your support an say hello.

This year we are seeing a lot of people approach us wanting to raise money for us. As well as giving us a little respite into the organising of events, which can be very stressful (lol), it also shows us how much we have come on and developed as a charity.

Some of the people are organising events as a way of showing their support for a family member or a friend who have lost a baby or child and others are families that we have worked with and given them help and support.

It makes us feel very proud of all we have achieved in a relatively short period of time and it also makes us see how amazing it is what Charlie has achieved in his short but precious life.
