Martha goes to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Procedure

Martha attended Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital again this week for a procedure under general anaesthetic

Martha was a very brave girl (despite being a bit grumpy at not being able to eat or drink before the procedure) and was happy when everything was done and she could have something to eat.

Martha will be going back to GOSH next month to review the results with her consultants and plan future treatment.

Quince Players "The Accused" supports Martha

Sarah Matthews, director of the recent Quince Players' production of "The Accused" by Jeffery Archer, generously supported Martha through a number of activities such as raffles, ticket sales, sweepstakes and donations and raised an amazing £1006.20

Members of the audience for the Gala performance, many of whom were new to the Quince Players, commented on the high standard of the production and said that they would be sure to attend future shows.

The money raised will provide Martha with over two weeks of tailor made intensive physiotherapy at the Footsteps Centre in Oxford.

Many thanks to Sarah and the cast and crew of The Accused for continuing to support Martha so generously.

Elliot Completes his Fantastic Fundraising Effort for Martha

Martha's cousin Elliot set himself the challenge of completing 10 long distance running races and raising money for Martha's intensive physiotherapy at the Footsteps Centre in Oxford.

Elliot has now completed his challenge and with the support of his friends and family has raised an amazing £1000 for Martha.

This will pay for two weeks of therapy and will, we hope, go along way in helping us support Martha to reach her full potential.

Thank you to Elliot and to everyone who has supported him.
