Not forgetting that we shall be receiving a donation from Dronfield Genquip Band before then from their Charity Ball  which will go towards this remaining balance.

Well done everyone. Thank you all who have enabled us  to send yet another substantial amount to the charity and hopefully another small step towards finding a cure for this horrible disease. Your continued support is amazing and very much appreciated.
