Buttsbury Loyal Citizens Lodge were pleased to hand a cheque for £1000 to Daisy Palmer Trust.
Daisy suffers from the incredibly rare and debilitating illness known as Chronic Intestine Pseudo-Obstruction (CIPs). This means she cannot eat anything at all orally, and is instead fully reliant on being fed intravenously directly via her heart.
The Burned Children’s Club
Buttsbury Loyal Citizens Lodge were pleased to hand a cheque for £500 to The Burned Children’s Club.
This club is a registered charity founded in 1995 and provides much-needed support to young burn survivors and their families. The Burned Children’s Club is all about burn survivors and their families. Using a fun, recreational approach, they promote self-esteem and help children come to terms with their altered body image. Support is also essential to parents and siblings as they too need help to adjust to the trauma the victim has suffered.
AMMF is the UK’s only dedicated Cholangiocarcinoma (CC) charity and Buttsbury Loyal Citizens Lodge are happy to be able to support it with a donation of £500.
The charity’s current objectives are to raise the awareness of Cholangiocarcinoma, to support specialised research teams in their work to find the cause of this rare form and hard to diagnose cancer, to devise methods of earlier diagnosis and treatments and to promote awareness of this disease.
Although Cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) is considered a rare cancer, worldwide it is the second most common cancer arising in the liver. Because it is so difficult to diagnose accurately and early, CC is often advanced by the time of diagnosis and so surgery, currently the only potential cure, is not always an option. Only 5% will survive one year from a diagnosis of CC.
