Huge congratulations to Theresa and Neil Peacock and the amazing Thunderbolts – Ethan and Casper Peacock who raised an incredible £1000 for the Norrie Disease Foundation in an evening of brilliant music, quizzes and auctions. Thank you so much to all Theresa and Neil’s friends for your support and of course a very big thank you to Ethan and Casper for sharing their talents.
Our big push this year is Jeans for Genes Day on the 22nd September. The Norrie Disease Foundation were honoured to receive a Genetic Disorders UK grant from funds raised on last year’s Jeans for Genes Day. Jeans for Genes was set up to provide grants to disorder-specific charities and patient groups to fund projects and services for children affected by genetic disorders.
Last summer Solomon and Jake chose the Norrie Disease Foundation to receive donations given at their eighth birthday party. They raised a fantastic £380. Jake and Solomon, along with their family and friends, hosted a wonderful party at a gorgeous farm in Surrey where they fed and groomed the animals and even milked the cows.
Our Treasurer, Theresa Peacock, asked her friends to donate to the Foundation instead of giving anniversary presents to Theresa and Neil. A very generous £300 was raised for the Norrie Disease Foundation – and we are very grateful to Theresa and Neil’s friends for their kind donations.
