On behalf of Salamanda Swimming Academy, I would like to share with you that one of our long-time Smestow mums, Nina Sinclair, is fundraising for the National Brain Appeal. Nina’s husband, David, was diagnosed with a low grade brain tumour in October, 2013, and underwent surgical resection in February this year at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London.
This is a Charity which is really close to my heart because I lost a friend Andrea Thursfield who was in her prime of life to this terrible Cancer. Those of you who are friends with me on my personal facebook page will have noticed that my husband, Lee, and his best friend, Nick, who was Andrea’s partner abseiled down Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth, at the weekend in aid of the Brain Tumour Research charity www.facebook.com/spinnakertowerabseil4charity.
Now Nina is doing her bit for this wonderful charity…… as both events are very close to our hearts at Salamanda any support you can give to either event is very much appreciated.
Nina’s Close Shave will take place on 25 July, 2015, at Cute Hair Salon, Tettenhall Wood beginning at midday with a bake sale and ending with her head shave which is planned for 3pm. More information can be found here: www.facebook.com/events/416599815161900. If you are unable to attend the event, but would like to support Nina in her endeavours, donations can be made at www.virginmoneygiving.com/NinaSinclair2015.
