31.12.13 HAPPY NEW YEAR
This year has been one of the toughest our family have ever faced. The birth of Noah, our beautiful son, his fight, tenacity and personality, coupled with the compassion and humility of those who cared for him, as well as the many who showed their support, never actually meeting him, was truly inspirational.
Noah's passing was our darkest hour, however from this empowered by our son, a light of hope has grown in intensity since, with the creation of Noah's Big Charity!
We are proud to let everyone know that in the 6 months the charity has been active we have raised in-excess of £20,000, which will be going to our benefactors at the Royal London and Basildon hospitals in the new year!
We as a family and as a charity thank you all for the tremendous support we have received, to our Team Noah members we thank you for your dedication and we wish one and all a very Happy New Year for 2014!
COME ON THE NOAH!
