The two C’s by the sea, wearing hats for charity
At the end of March JM DanceFit members are encouraged to wear a hat to class for a £1 donation, to support Sidmouth’s ‘Wear A Hat Week’ and to raise awareness and funds for Brain Tumour Research. More people under 40 die of a brain tumour than any other cancer, yet research is hugely underfunded. Last year as a team, we raised £300: https://www.jmdancefit.co.uk/events/jm-dancefit-supports-sidmouth-does-wear-a-hat-week/
This year Charlie Gwillim, who used to print our JM DanceFit tops, has joined the Sidmouth fundraising team with Charlotte Reid. A year ago, Charlie, 28, was successfully running her own business, Devon Embroidery, when a visit to the opticians showed ‘something’ was crushing her optic nerve. Within 3 days Charlie was in Derriford having her cancerous, incurable anaplastic astrocytoma operated on. While we were fundraising last year, Charlie was having radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Charlotte Reid is battling daily with life limiting side effects from her craniopharyngioma tumour and treatment so when Angie, Charlotte’s mum, says ‘Last year’s event felt like an outpouring of love where a whole community wrapped us up, took notice and raised an incredible amount of money’ you know why the team are asking for our support again. There are also additional activities taking place throughout the week which you may wish to take part in. Please see the photos below for further details. Many thanks, as always, your support is very much appreciated. X
