On Friday 30th October, Laser 24 were in Spooktacular, socially distanced spirits, raising awareness and funds for the Williams Syndrome Foundation. An amazing charity that supports people with WS and those who love, care for and educate them.
There were plenty of terrifying outfits, spooky cakes and quizzes.
Our Director, Iain Summerfield, shares why he and Laser 24 supports the Williams Syndrome Foundation:
“My son Arthur has Williams Syndrome, a genetic disorder that was diagnosed at 10 months old.
Arthur, like most children with WS, has a heart murmur and will require open-heart surgery in the next few years.
He is currently being looked after by GOSH and the Royal Brompton hospital in London.
Children with WS are the kindest, most loving people you will ever meet. Their enjoyment of life is something special to behold. Also, Arthur’s favourite time of year is Halloween.”
With a huge help from our suppliers, customers and Laser 24 employees, to date we have raised a total of £2,250.
With an initial target of £500 without your help, None of this would had been possible.
The money raised will go towards vital research into WS and will support families.
Again, Laser 24 would like to Thank You for your generous donations and for your continued support.
The Williams Syndrome Foundation was formed as a Registered Charity in 1980 with the aims of promoting research and funding, and providing help and support for families with affected children. Read more about Williams Syndrome Foundation here
