Can we take a minute of your time?

Ellie This is our amazing granddaughter Ellie.

Ellie was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. Spina Bifida is where the spine and spinal cord don't develop properly in the womb, causing a gap in the spine. This can cause a number of difficulties including weakness or paralysis of the legs. Many babies with Spina Bifida also develop Hydrocephalus which, as in Ellie's case, sometimes needs an operation to insert a tube that drains excess fluid from the brain.

Children like Ellie are supported by the Shine Charity who provide specialist advice and support for the children and their families. Shine relies on donations to do this essential work and, this year, Ellie's uncle Dave will be running in the London Marathon to raise money for Shine. Obviously, we realise that requesting complete strangers to donate money to the charity is a bit of an ask but, now that you've read this far, perhaps you would consider taking a little bit more of your time to make a small donation to this very worthy cause at Dave's JustGiving Page? Thank you!
