Supporting The Short Bowel Survivors and Friends
Wednesday, November 04, 2015
We have raised £707 in aid of the Short Bowel Survivors and Friends which is based at Manchester Childrens Hospital.A 26 mile walk of the Yorkshire three peaks generously supported by customers,suppliers,collegues,friends and family enabled this contribution of funds to be delivered last week.
Their mission is not only to support families who have endured SBS but to to raise awareness of Short Bowel Syndrome throughout the UK and ensure up-to-date reliable information is available for everyone to access.
Through fundraising and public donation, our long term aim is to provide, where needed, some financial support to families with children suffering from SBS. This could be in the form of a grant for small items of equipment, materials, or clothing. These small grants could make a Big difference to families with small babies and children with SBS, particularly those needing long term hospitalisation, following major surgery.
When funds allow, we also intend to support reasearch into better treatments for children suffering Ultra-Short Bowel Syndrome which hopefully will alleviate the need for bowel transplants in the future.
