We have received a donation from Nicola MacMillan – here is what she said.
I had planned a small party for my husband’s 40th birthday and was looking for some family entertainment. When I came across a mobile casino company, I thought that this would be an ideal opportunity to do some fundraising at the same time. I put together a poster explaining Alternating Hemiplegia and a little information about the support group, then along with some photos to personalise it, I used a big pinboard to advertise my aim for the evening. I had three prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for who had the most chips left at the end of the evening, and made a lovely profit of £60.00 for the group. Everyone had a fantastic time and said what a great idea it was, and the best bit, there was hardly any work involved, just good fun.
My cousin, Lucie, suffers from Alternating Hemiplegia.
