SALOMONS is holding a charity evening on Friday March 23 called Stand Up For Stanley to raise funds for two-year-old Stanley Jump [below], who suffers from cystic fibrosis.
The condition causes thick mucus to clog up Stanley’s lungs, and the event organisers are hoping to raise £7,000 so his parents Rob and Vikki can buy a physio vest.
This piece of equipment vibrates the chest, breaking down the mucus, so the patient can breathe more easily.
Using the vest should result in fewer infections, an improved lung function and a better quality of life.
‘Using the vest should result in fewer infections, an improved lung function and a better quality of life’
Born in September 2015, Stanley lives in Tunbridge Wells but had to spend his first Christmas in a high dependency unit at King’s College Hospital in south London. At one stage he caught bronchitis, which caused a lung to collapse.
The evening at the Southborough venue will feature a 70s and 80s disco. Entry costs £10, which includes a fish and chip supper and a drink.
If you would like to attend, please visit Stanley’s fundraising page below and donate £10 for each ticket you wish to purchase (plus Gift Aid).
Please ensure your name and the amount donated are not hidden so the organisers can track your donation.
Your tickets will be sent to you if you then email your postal address to: firstname.lastname@example.org
