Oliver and Natalie say thanks 90,000 times over
Generous Islanders have been thanked for a second year of
fundraising by the family of Oliver Smith.
The four-year-old’s mum, Natalie, also wanted to wish everyone a
happy Christmas and New Year.
Since June last year, Times Guardian readers have helped to
raise more than £90,000 for the Oliver Smith Appeal.
He has the childhood cancer neuroblastoma and his family is
trying to raise £150,000 for treatment he could need in Germany if
his condition gets worse.
The money has come from a series of sponsored events, fun days,
donations and the sale of wristbands and other merchandise.
Natalie, of Coral Road, Minster, said: “Oliver, me and all my
family would like to send our heartfelt thanks to everyone on
Sheppey who has given to the appeal, staged an event or donated
their time, money or goods in any way.
“We have been overwhelmed by the support we have received and
really feel like just saying thank you isn’t enough.
“We are so grateful and would like to wish everyone a very happy
Christmas and New Year.”
