On February 5th 2016, Tim Martin together with Ellen and Laura Bletsoe raised over £30,000 for BDFA during a Fundraising Lunch Event at the City of London Club. Tim Martin met Ellen at an event they both attended last year. He was touched by Laura’s story and how terrible Batten disease is. Tim wanted to help so he organised a fundraising lunch to raise money and awareness of Batten disease.
Here are the speeches held during the event, in order of appearance: Tim Martin, Ellen and Laura Bletsoe and Dr Sara Mole:
The BDFA Team would like to thank Tim Martin for such an amazing fundraising event.
