Co-Op raffle to help youngster with rare illness
PUBLISHED: 15:09 20 September 2012
STAFF at Sidmouth’s Co-operative store hope a raffle can boost a charity that wants to help a four-year-old with a rare illness that stops him from playing with other youngsters.
A hamper filled with £55 of fair trade goods and a £10 voucher are up for grabs at the High Street outlet.
The draw will take place on Saturday, September 29.
Cash will go to a Precious Kids appeal to help a tot called Harry who suffers from nephropathic cystinosis – a condition which affects the kidneys, eyes and delayed growth and stops him from interacting with others.
The cause wants to convert part of Harry’s garden into a specialist play area.
