Please help Thomas to raise funds for St Catherine's Hospice, Preston.


Thomas aged nine from Croston has written dozens of letters himself to tennis players, boxers, footballers and pop stars in order to collect as many autographs as possible and auction them off at his school. 
 
Money raised from the auction will be donated to St Catherine's Hospice, Preston, a place that provided vital end-of-life care to Thomas' dad who passed away on December 23, 2018.  Despite his father's tragic death, Thomas has kept his head held high and is concentrating all his efforts on fundraising.
 
"I hope I can raise £2,000, I know it's a lot of money but that's how much I would like to raise for the hospice. St Catherine's helped my Daddy who died in December last year and they really supported me, they have helped a lot lately."
 
"I've got quite a few autographs now, I've got an Andy Murray signed cap, a David Beckham signed football shirt, a signed EF Pro Cycling and an Olly Murs signed picture.

Thomas' mum is extremely proud of her son and says that his work is giving her family something to rally around as they face life without her husband.
 
The fantastic list of signatures & memorabilia is ready for you to bid or enquire about buying a ticket to the exciting live auction on Friday December 6. View the full list and all info here https://www.facebook.com/Helpingthomass/
 
You can also simply donate on this page.  Let’s beat little Thomas’s target for this very worthy cause.
