Christmas Card Campaign 2015

This year we decided to make our own Christmas cards, and to have a JustGiving page for donations. Many people joined in, some purchasing cards, some donating instead of sending cards.

It was a HUGE success for a first event, and we are happy to announce that YOU raised an amazing £611.72 for the Fight Fund.

We really enjoyed this campaign - and are looking forward to another one in just under 11months! Lets get our thinking caps on for card designs!


Sunday 6th December

Move a Mile for Muscles - Sponsored walk.

When: Sunday 6th December. 10am - 1pm

Where: Southampton, UK

Contact: sian@cmmd.uk

Move a Mile for Muscles - walking a mile is easy for most children but for Emmie, and children like her, it is a challenge as she has a muscle wasting condition called Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy. 

We would like to say a great THANK YOU to all the other wonderful people involved, for joining Emmie on her walk.

There was a great turnout, and so many children got involved and helped raise money. Each child received a certificate and a chocolate Santa!

The total raised was an outstanding £1286.40.

We would like to send a HUGE Thank you to Sian for organising the event, and to all the businesses and individuals who donated to the raffle - there were some awesome prizes!

Well done everyone!
