Brilliant Brummy, Louise!
RAISING AWARENESS AND RAISING FUNDS!
A huge thank you to Louise Walsh, a KSA member who has been running a ‘one-family’ campaign in the Birmingham area to raise awareness of KS/XXY and to raise funds for the KSA.
She has been an absolute powerhouse!
This is what she has already done:
- a fund/awareness raising event in her local pub, with a DJ, face painting and games for the children. Louise went round with her KSA change box, raising awareness and £78!
- 2 cake sales where she also made sweetie cones and raised a total of £137.90.
- she completed the great Birmingham 10k run on the 26th June with her cousin in a fantastic 1 hour and 10 minutes.
- Altogether so far she have raised over £700 on her Facebook page.
This is what she has still to do:
On 7th June 2019 she has arranged to have a young singer/songwriter playing at the pub with tickets at £5. There will also be a raffle and a face painter. A mascot has been kindly donated for the children for the night.
Louise has talked to the Birmingham Mail about how Dylan, her lovely son, was diagnosed with Klinefelter’s Syndrome and they will be helping her to raise awareness.
She is trying to get the BBC and ITV central news to come along to the event. If you know anyone in TV, please ask them to pull some strings and contact Louise via Vicechair@ksa-uk.net!
It should be a great night so if you are in the area, don’t miss it!
Louise is hoping to raise over £1000 at this event and, even more importantly, a huge amount of awareness of KS/XXY.
Thank you so much, Louise – and all your family and friends.
