Banner Box support local community fundraiser
Local teenager William Huntley suffers from a rare sleep disorder.
William has a rare, incurable condition that means he gets little sleep at night. The 14-year-old repeatedly bangs his head on his bed at his Chesterfield home because of rhythmic movement disorder. The constant noise keeps the rest of his family awake as well.
Now they have begun a fundraising campaign for a protective bed for William and a soundproof extension to their home.
The Outwood Academy recently hosted a Fun Day to raise money for the appeal. They played a staff football match between Outwood Academy Newbold and the Springwell Community College and arranged a popular tombola, a raffle, face-painting for the children and many other stalls too. The day was not just for students and parents of the academy but very much an event for the whole community and all who attended enjoyed.
Banner Box were pleased to provide the banner which was displayed at the Academy to advertise the event as a way of providing our own support for the community and for a very worthy cause.
The Fun Day took place at the Academy on Friday 7 July and over £1000 was raised for William’s family. Banner Box were pleased to be able to help.
The Academy wrote: ‘When it comes to organising charity events, the generosity of others can be the difference with regards to making them a success. A huge thank you should go to Banner Box for producing the banner for our Fun Day. It really does help get the message out there to the community and ultimately raise as much money as possible for our chosen charity.’
