IN MEMORY OF ALEX
On each Thomson Airlines flight, money is collected for charity. Each airport base has a local charity that they nominate and then a quarter of all money raised throughout the year goes to that charity. This year I nominated The David Ashwell Foundation and have just found out that it is now the official local charity for London Gatwick Airport. We have well over 100 flights per week, both long and short haul around the world so many thousands of people will now be made aware of ACD and lots of money will be raised for more research. Am so proud of my colleagues for voting for the David Ashwell Foundation and to Amelia and Simon for setting up a UK based charity.
IN MEMORY OF ERIC HANSON
Sara Hickman, the 2010 Texas State Musician, headlined a benefit concert in Dallas, Texas on June 15 for ACD research. We welcomed family, friends and guests to Uncle Calvin’s Coffehouse for a night of live acoustic music by Sara and the Houston based trio, 2-Bit Palomino. Friends that could not attend the concert sent in donations to NORD so we are still waiting to make the final calculation on how much money we raised but expect over $3,000. It was a memorable evening full of laughter, raising awareness (even with our friends) and a moment of silence for Eric.
