As many of you may have seen, for several years now we have been supporting local Northampton Charity – Emma's Aim. As in previous years, once again we will be making a donation to Emma's Aim instead of sending Christmas Cards to our clients and suppliers.
We have known Emma for a number of years now, 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 so passionate about this cause.
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.
In the last few years, I have been fundraising for charities who have helped me throughout my treatment. This year I have decided I would like to support local children and young adults going through cancer treatment. I have set up Emma’s Aim as a Charitable Trust in order to do this.
I know how important it is to have support when going through such a difficult time. This is why it would mean so much to me, to help others going through a similar situation. Thank you for taking the time to read this.”
Fundraising in 2020
Normally this time of year we would be helping support Emma with design and print for her Magical Christmas Experience event, but due to the current restrictions, this is unable to take place this year. Emma would also normally be running several events throughout the year as part of her fundraising efforts, but again none of these have been able to happen during the pandemic.
You can of course still make a donation to Emma's Aim, though, via her PayPal link via the button below.
