Regular TA super supporter Grace Myers held another hugely successful event in central London for super fans of the hit West End show ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ which tells the true story about Jamie Campbell, who at the age of 16, wanted to go to his school prom in a dress.

Grace, who has TS, held a raffle and sold cupcakes to raise a fantastic £152.20 for TA. Thank you Grace! You are such an inspirational young lady!

Lottie Smith held a pub quiz and raffle to raise money and awareness of TS, raising £160.. She also entered the Pure Beauty pageant, and won first place! Lottie is now Miss pure international United Kingdom and will be travelling to America in the summer to compete internationally, raising awareness of TS as she goes. Good luck with the competition Lottie!

The Guildford support group held their 'post' Christmas party on the 5th January and a great time was had by all. There was lots of lovely food, plenty of party games and an amazing raffle which raised £50.00 for the group. As if that wasn’t enough, the icing on the cake was a special visit from Sam Jones, who bought Baby Leo and performed some magic. Dave and TJay would like to say thank you to everybody who helped make it  such a success.

Facebook Birthday Fundraisers

4 people signed up to Facebook's fundraising platform this month, to selflessly raise donations for TA instead of receiving birthday gifts. Not only is this a kind, generous gesture, but it also raises important awareness on social media.

Our HUGE thanks go to the following supporters who have raised £433!

Catherine Mosey
Jennie Crompton
Amy Penfold
