Amazing Fundraiser hosted by Elimar Pigeon Services
We helped the family of Evie Moores to get an Embrace 2 seizure watch earlier this year. As a “small thank you” the family did some fundraising with a huge amount of support from some pigeon flyers. They donated their racing pigeons for Evie’s great grandad to auction off through his business Elimar Pigeon Services.
We were presented with a cheque for the money raised. It was a cheque for £12,000, yes £12,000. We couldn’t express how grateful we all are. We’re going to be able to help so many young people for some time to come. Amazing! and a special thanks to Tony who’s grandson has epilepsy, he auctioned off all his pigeons and donated the proceeds to us.
Meeting with Epilepsy Team at Royal Stoke University Hospital
Meeting at Flanshaw Primary School, West Yorkshire
On 20th February I was given the opportunity to speak to children and staff about epilepsy and Jon Shaw Foundation. I was joined by Emma Pitchforth who lost her son Ollie in July last year. We were made very welcome by everyone on the day, and the children worked really hard designing things to help people with epilepsy. It was lovely to see them all researching epilepsy and talking about it using correct terminology. On Friday 24th the school held a “Wear purple day” and raised a fantastic £200 for Jon Shaw Foundation. Thank you all so much.
Charity Lunch 1 March Wilmslow
I have been invited to present Jon Shaw Foundation at a charity lunch in Wilmslow. The group have pledged a donation of £1000 to support families in the Cheshire /Stockport areas.
Thank you. 😊
Our story in a National Magazine
We were lucky enough to have had Jons story published in Woman and Home magazine in February 2022. It was a lovely two page feature about his journey with epilepsy and what happened the morning he died. Hopefully it will encourage questions and promote awareness of the real risk of death in epilepsy
