Adam Walter is sponsoring this exciting fundraiser in memory of his sister Charlotte Walter, who had SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy), a severe muscle-wasting disease. Helen & Douglas House supported Charlotte from the age of 4 and the Walter family before, during and after Charlotte sadly passed away in 2013 at 18 years old.

Adam said “My sister was so brave and persistent. My family were all so excited to be able to be a part of celebrating the life of my sister and recognise that Helen & Douglas House was a big part of our family. IXL Events Ltd, Dallas Burston Polo Club my employers, have also noticed how much the charity means to me as an employee… Helen & Douglas House has given amazing support to our family including respite care for my sister and our family.”

We are so grateful to Adam for organising this fundraiser in memory of his sister. We need to raise £3.6m a year to provide vital support to families with terminally ill children and young people like Charlotte and cannot do this without people like Adam organising fundraisers like this.
