Fund raising updates

Hi - We have a number of fund raising events to update you on...

Derby Twins Club

On Friday 10th August, members of the Derby Twins Club took part in a sponsored "toddle/pushchair push" around Carsington Water to raise funds for Twins with SMA. There was a good turnout and the weather was beautiful and everyone stayed for a picnic afterwards. Many thanks to the twins club members that took part and their friends and families for sponsoring them. The total raised was £378!
