Joshua Deeth Foundation Coffee morning in Crieff tomorrow

If you're in Crieff tomorrow, Saturday 10th July, please spare some time to pop along to a coffee morning to raise funds for the Joshua Deeth Foundation which is being held from 10 am-12 noon at St Fillan's Church Hall, Ford Road, Crieff. See here for map.

Joshua Deeth is the son of my friends Nicola and Stephen. He passed away last November at the age of just 3 months from a very rare neurolgical condition, Ponto-Cerebellar Hypoplasia Type 1. Nicola and Stephen set up the Joshua Deeth Foundation in his memory to raise money to fund research and help other families affected by rare neurological diseases.

In May the Foundation was formally launched at a spectacular ceilidh in Crieff. Since then, they have raised over £15000. Recently my friend Martin, Joshua's uncle, along with Stephen and other friends and family walked the West Highland Way.

Tomorrow's coffee morning will be great fun, with baking, and bric a brac and face painting for the kids while raising money for an excellent cause. Please pop in and say hello. If you can't be there, please show your support by joining the Foundation's Facebook page.
