CROHN’S & COLITIS UK RAFFLE FOR RESEARCH 2018 – 💜PLEASE HELP US💜 As many of you know, our beautiful daughter Millie, who is 10 years old, has Crohn’s Disease and is still not in remission almost 2 years after diagnosis. Last year, in an effort to do something positive, we, as a family, made it our mission to sell as many raffle tickets for Crohn’s and Colitis UK’s Raffle for Research and we raised £1,500 – thanks to you. The charity is using Millie and her story to headline this year’s campaign and I know some of you may have been sent your own raffle tickets to sell for this cause. The horrific thing about Crohn’s and Colitis is that currently there is no cure and as such, it is a life sentence. We are asking you to please, please buy some of the tickets you have received or, if you didn’t receive your own tickets, please, please buy tickets from us (you can see us after morning service or call us on 0141 638 0630). Our only hope in finding a cure is in the vital research that is being done. Tickets are £1 each and just buying one ticket will make an enormous difference. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all so much. The Simpson Family xxxx 💜
