Fundraiser to support toddler with life-threatening illness
11:15am Friday 18th October 2013 in News
GENEROUS residents in Castle Point are being invited to a fun day to help raise money for a toddler with a life-threatening blood disorder.
The Chapman Sands Sailing Club in Eastern Esplanade, Canvey is holding a fundraising day where visitors will be able to take part in a raffle, dance the night away at a disco and enjoy a BBQ.
A clown will also be on hand to entertain the youngsters.
The event is being held in aid of two-year-old Indie Smith, who in 2011 was diagnosed with the incurable blood disorder Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, also known as A-HUS.
Indie, who is from Springfield, is currently taking part in a clinical research study for the drug Eculizumab, which is an extremely expensive treatment and will cost her family £250,000 a year once the trial ends.
Tickets to the event cost £5. All proceeds will go towards her treatment.
The event will take place from 3pm tomorrow.
