Christmas For The Trotmans

Christmas time is almost upon us, buying presents, setting up the tree, decorating our homes and spending time with our families.  A time of year our dear friend Hayley absolutely loves.  Unfortunately, things aren't quite as straight forward for the Trotmans this Christmas. Hayley and her family have not had an easy time over these last few years; In March, Carl received a much longed-for transplant and the future looked bright, even with the onset  of COVID-19.  However,  Hayley was admitted to  hospital in August this year, fighting GBS (Guillian-Barre Syndrome) a very rare disorder where her immune system attacked her nerves, leaving her almost paralysed.  But anyone that knows Hayley, knows she's has guts and is a real fighter, and she is beating this horrible illness with her usual uniqueness and infectious humor.  She is making great progress daily but they're still unsure of her recovery period which could mean she's still in hospital over Christmas. We know many of you would love to help this amazing family, in particular, the children who may not have their mother at home and poor Carl, who is being mum and dad to 3 adorable teenagers!! Depending on how much is raised, the plan would be to get the children vouchers to spend on something very special for themselves, maybe to help with shopping and festive treats, maybe to help prepare the house for Hayleys return or to help towards a holiday when she has fully recovered. I'm sure your donations and well wishes will be gratefully received and it would mean the world to them to know how much they are loved and how much we miss them. The family are unaware of this, as we thought it would be a lovely surprise for them nearer Christmas so we are keeping it quiet. Please feel free to invite friends to join the group, just dont send to Hayley!! Any questions please do not hesitate to contact Fiona Stewart or Sarah McNair.
