Martha's Magic Quiz 2016
Martha’s family and supporters turned out in impressive
numbers for what has now become Martha’s annual fundraising event. We had
lots of very positive feedback from people who attended and we have raised
enough money to pay for a full three week period of daily intensive
physiotherapy at the Footsteps Centre in Oxford and some weekly privately funded physiotherapy at home. Martha really
benefits from these and they will be even more vital if Martha has to have surgery on her
hips later this year.
