My name is Connor Murray and I am in Year 2 at Prestbury primary school. As some of you may already know, my Daddy has a condition called Cystic Fibrosis. It is an illness that affects his breathing and also some of his organs inside his tummy. He was born with it and it means that he has to have lots and lots of medicines everyday to keep him well. These include injections of insulin several times a day because he is also a diabetic as a result of the the cystic fibrosis. Approximately 10,000 people in the UK suffer from cystic fibrosis but 1 in 25 people are carriers of it, which thankfully means that they don’t actually suffer any symptoms of it.
I would really like to raise some money for the cystic fibrosis charities, in particular for the children who suffer from it and need extra care and support. I have suggested a non uniform day on 4th December 2020 (which also happens to be my 7th birthday!) Please can all the children and teachers wear something with purple and or yellow which are the colours for the cystic fibrosis trust. All I would ask for in return is a minimum donation of £2 which the teachers and I will collect on the day.
I am also raffling off 65 Roses which will be beautifully arranged into three separate bouquets by the amazing Flower House. ‘65 Roses’ is synonymous with cystic fibrosis after a little girl thought that was the name of the charity for which her school was raising money! The innocence of it and the beautiful connection has meant the name has stuck and they even host a ball called the Sixty Five Roses Ball in aid of Cystic Fibrosis charities. Please purchase as many raffle tickets as you can for £2.50 each for your chance to win! Please say in a message how many tickets you have purchased. You will be allocated a raffle ticket which will go into the draw. We will be announcing the winners before Christmas! Thank you so much for supporting a cause that is very close to my heart.
Love from Connor xxx
