Pig & Pimms Garden Party in aid of Shine The Light On Aniridia

By Elly Chappele

Shine The Light On Aniridia has been been raising funds to enable research for a cure for Aniridia to begin this year. we hope, at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London under Dr Julie Daniels and her team.

We have reached approximately £30,000 now with the campaign Shine the Light on Aniridia which is a feat we never thought possible! The target we need to achieve is £50,000 by the end of the year.

This event will help us get closer to the target:

‘Pig & Pimms’ Garden Party
from 3pm Saturday 21 May 2011 at
Acton House in Felton, Northumberland
by kind permission of the Ferguson family. 

It promises to be a wonderful day with a hog roast, Pimms, bouncy castle, face painting, planting in the walled garden, treasure hunt, jazz and much more…..

Please help spread the word about this event and if you can attend yourself we would love to see you there!

All monies from this campaign go directly to the research, there are no overheads, no third parties and no admin fees.
