Three schools in Newbury, Berkshire, attended by children of a SCAD patient, have raised more than £500 for Beat SCAD!
School nurse Kim had a SCAD in September 2018 (read her story here) and was subsequently diagnosed with Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) as well. Everyday life has changed for Kim, but she has found connecting with other SCAD patients a lifeline.
Her children’s schools held non-uniform days to raise money for Beat SCAD and did a fantastic job. In total the three schools raised £531.42 for Beat SCAD.
St John The Evangelist Nursery and Infant School, which Kim’s youngest son attended at the time she had her SCAD, raised £151.42 for Beat SCAD by selling the crafts the children had made.
At St Nicolas Church of England Junior School, all the children wore red or pink for a day to raise money for Beat SCAD. Kim’s son’s class (pictured below) raised £230.
Her eldest two children are in Davis House at St Bartholomew’s Secondary School, which raised £300 by wearing red and making love hearts with their hands. This was split between Children in Need and Beat SCAD. Pictured below is Kim’s daughter and friends with Head of Davis House Mrs McKeown.
Massive thanks to all the children, their parents, families, friends and the teachers who made this possible!
And thanks to Kim, who is pictured below with her husband and children.
