In 2009 my world stopped turning. My little boy Zack had just turned 5 and after many misdiagnosis was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. For 3.5 years we dealt with every day as it happened. Far too frightened to look toward the future. Now my beautiful boy is a happy healthy 10 year old boy. Just completing his first half term of school with no sick days. He and his friend Liam have decided to trek Mount Teide in Tenerife. This is the 3rd largest volcano on earth and is still active. They are dedicated to giving 100 % of monies raised to their chosen charities and us parents are saving hard to pay for the trip with a helping hand from Aurigny.com who are flying us to the mainland for free.. Alderney Cancer Relief have been so incredible to our family, and the new skatepark is important to the children of Alderney. Please click on the link to read more and please give as much as you can. Let's give Zack and Liam something to be very proud of themselves. Please visit alderney cancer relief team teide on gofundme or visit our facebook page Alderney cancer relief Team Teide. Many thanks

    So who is paying for Zack & Liam's trip?

    You mentioned their chosen charities, which will receive 100% of the money raised, it would be useful for you to say which charities will benefit.

    Aldernay - do you live there?

    There is no link to click on to, although I did find some information using Google.

    Hi there. Unable to post link as new user but its written by hand also the title of the fb page. We (the parents) are saving hard to pay for the trip and so far our flights from Alderney to the Uk have been donated by Aurigny.com (local airline). The charities to benefit are listed on the gofundme page as it goes directly into their bank account and I'll edit it now. Thanks for your help.

    Well, in 2009 after months of trying to get my poorly son diagnosed with something other than mummys paranoia, we finally got a diagnosis that stopped my world from turning. My baby, only just 5. Diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. For 3.5 years we dealt with every day as it happened often he was wheelchair bound due to weakened muscles from the steroids he had to take. We were far too frightened to look toward the future. Now my beautiful boy is a happy healthy 10 year old . Just completing his first half term of school with no sick days. He and his friend Liam have decided to trek Mount Teide in Tenerife at the end of April. This is the 3rd largest volcano on earth and is still active. They are dedicated to giving 100 % of monies to their chosen charities. Some of the charities have been so incredible to our family, some are important to the children of Alderney. Please click on the link to read more and please give as much as you van. Let's give Zack and Liam something to be very proud of themselves for facebook page Alderney cancer relief team teide or look for us on gofundme. :j

    Well, we have both a 'Small Biz and Charity Organisers' board and a 'Charities' board, and this one should be on Charities, so I'll move it over there.
