12th annual coffee morning held for the Tommy Salisbury Choroideremia Fund


Over 70 visitors attended the annual Coffee Morning to help raise money for the Tommy Salisbury Choroideremia Fund. Hosted by Tommy’s mother Emma in his grandparents back garden, the event brought together many friends and family. 

Tommy’s grandmothers, Dot and Barbara, who also co-hosted the yearly event brought along hand painted cards, knitted children’s hair slides and bobbles, purses, homemade chutney and cushions on top of the usual cakes and treats.

Dot said: “We are always amazed at the generosity of all our friends and family on these occasions, it was a truly lovely morning and we are enormously grateful to several local companies who once again supplied prizes for our raffle.”

The next annual coffee morning will be held next summer, but there are lots of other fundraising activities planned so we can continue finding a cure for choroideremia, and other sight loss diseases alike.
