Had the most amazing news today. This is a very special piece of equipment that we have bought for Eden, the young girl who had a horrific accident earlier this year, resulting in her having a hypoxic brain injury. Eden is obviously a very strong girl as her progress is coming along so well that she was actually pedalling the bike on her own today. Her mum sent me the amazing news and asked me to thank everyone for their kind donations which helped buy this equipment. This is what we do, we try to help local children and their families have a better quality of life. Well done Eden we are so proud of you .
Thank you to all the ladies who attended the Ascot Ladies Day at Mere Court , you all looked fabulous. I mentioned at the beginning of the day we are looking to get a special piece of equipment for a 2 yr old little girl who has Spina Bifida and thanks to the generosity of the ladies today we will be ordering that equipment tomorrow. So thank you ladies. And for those asking yes we will be holding the event again next year but at a different venue.
Our biggest event of the year was held at the Midland Hotel on Saturday 14th May – with the theme being Titanic. It was a wonderful evening, fantastic food served to 230 people, amazing entertainment from Dominic Halpin and the Honey B’s, a mesmerising floor show from some of the young dancers from Freak Dance and dancing till late with the top DJ Keith Fane.
Through the generosity of the guests on the evening £20,000 was raised.
Congratulations to Jillian Burrows on winning the April Bonus Ball with number 31
A great day was had by all at this special event. The fundraising committee pulled out all the stops by serving up a delicious afternoon tea and dressed the venue with flags of St George. We were all entertained by a fabulous singer, finishing the day with a rousing sing a long. Thank you to Marsha, Emma, Justine, Helen & Maureen for all your hard work. Mum would have loved this.
We are delighted to welcome 2 new trustees to our board. Mrs Joanne Booth & Mr Peter Shrigley. Both have been great supporters of the charity for many years and we feel they will be great assets to our Foundation.
Congratulations to Amanda Gleave. The winning bonus ball for March was number 28
This year, through the generosity of so many individual people and organisations like M&W Group, Sense and Nat West Bury, we have been able to deliver over 600 Easter Eggs to local children who are living in tough times. Donations have gone to Barnardos, Salford & Bolton Womens Refuges, Spirit of Trust, Salford & Bury childrens services and many many local families. Thank you to everyone who donated eggs, you have really made a difference to so many childrens lives.
Happy Easter everyone
Eden is a 14 year old girl who attends Parrenthorn School in Prestwich. She was involved in a terrible accident in January which has now resulted in a severe hypoxic brain injury. When Eden eventually leaves hospital she is going to need lots of help and some very expensive specialist equipment at home, which her family and friends have started a fundraising campaign for. But Eden needs a specialist Shower Chair very urgently and the hospital dont have anything like what she needs, so the Frost Foundation have today ordered that chair. It will make Edens life a little more comfortable while she is in hospital but will go home with her as well. We wish Eden lots of luck
Had another request to help a 17 month little boy from Salford called Ronnie. Ronnie has a neurological developmental condition , that has impacted on all areas of Ronnie’s development , he is unable to sit up unaided or hold his head unsupported , Ronnie has limited mobility and is totally reliant on an adult . Ronnie requires a more specialised car seat that will enable him to travel safely and at the same time support his postural needs.
We are delighted to have bought this for Ronnie and hope he is comfortable in his new seat
