Like many businesses, we normally send Christmas cards (as design and print is one of our services we are almost obliged to), but this year we have decided, for a very good reason, not to do so. This year we will be donating the £250 we normally spend on Christmas Cards to “Emma's Aim“. We have known Emma for a few years, and have been inspired by her hard work and fundraising efforts for various charities but we will let Emma tell you in her own words why she is passionate about these charities.
About Emma and her Fundraising
“Hello, my name is Emma McVeigh. In 2006, at the age of 16, I was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia. So far my treatment has included an unrelated bone marrow transplant, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and donor lymphocyte infusions. Despite all the treatment I am still fighting leukaemia.
As this year marks 11 years since I was diagnosed, I am raising money for 5 fantastic charities; Anthony Nolan, Bloodwise, CLIC Sargent, Teenage Cancer Trust and Willow. All of these charities have really supported me through my continuing battle with cancer, therefore I would like to give something back to them and be able to help others.
I believe charities like this play a vital part in helping so many people at a very difficult time in their lives. It is my aim to help promote awareness of these charities and to raise as much as I possibly can for them. Next year my planned events include a second Charity Ball and a Quiz Night and I have recently held a Christmas Fun Day. If you would like to keep up to date with my upcoming events and fundraising activities please check out www.facebook.com/emmasaim10
Thank you for taking time to read this.”
