Tigger helps William
Hudson, who’s not yet two years old, to accept a cheque for £750 on behalf of the charity Caring Matters Now. The funds, from the New Provincial Benevolent Fund,
will be used to undertake research to develop treatment for a rare condition called
Melanocytic Naevus, a skin condition affecting
children in the womb.
Says William’s mum Amy
Hudson: “Caring Matters Now is very grateful for this money, which will help in
the work of dedicated and special people searching for a way to fight this
condition. “William was born with it, and
although there are no guarantees, it’s possible that through this donation, and
others like it, research could reduce or eradicate the potential consequences
of the dangers he faces from it. In any event, it will definitely help towards
making a significant difference to others like him in the years to come.
“We’re very grateful to
Lincolnshire’s Freemasons, and especially those in St Lawrence Lodge, for
thinking of us.”
