Dear Ali, This is just a quick email to say thank you so much for your raffle prize in support of my nephew Iolo’s charity quiz in aid of CICRA (a small specialist charity which researches inflammatory bowel disease in children and teenagers) and Cystic Fibrosis. The raffle and quiz took place on 29th December 2018 at Market Street Club, in Barry. The evening was very well attended and more than 120 people took part, lots of fun was had by all and there are a number of photographs attached showing how the night went. As a result of the raffle and quiz, we raised the grand total of £1300; £600 was donated to CICRA, £600 was donated to Cystic Fibrosis and £100 was given as a gift to Iolo, which he donated to Noah’s Ark and CICRA. Iolo is supporting CICRA and Noah’s Ark as a result of health difficulties he experienced during 2018. In April last year Iolo was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, he became very sick very quickly and had to have life saving surgery to remove the whole of his large intestine. The nursing staff and doctors at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital in Cardiff saved Iolo’s life and provided him with incredible care during the time he was with them, and they continue to provide support for him as an out patient. Iolo faces further complex surgeries and health issues, however he is determined to look forward as positively as possible and wants to raise as much money as he can to help CICRA fund research into his condition and to support Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital continue to help very sick children and teenagers.
Iolo hopes to raise more money for his charities by taking part in a 100 mile sponsored bike ride which takes place at the end of March 19, you can find more information about this at: Virgin Money Giving | Fundraising |Iolo’s 100 Mile Bike Ride – Help Karen change the world!
