The evening of December 1st was a very special evening for us. So often as parents of daughters with Rett Syndrome, we face what we face alone. Looking around 3 Olaf Street that night, the room milling with people all there to show their support for our endeavour to speed treatment for our children, was nothing short of breath-taking and one which will carry many of us through dark moments which may be to come.
But that’s not all you will carry. On that night, through your generosity and commitment we raised an amazing £273,000 which will be immediately invested in the high-impact science projects we support.
The future of children and adults suffering with Rett Syndrome has never looked brighter. We fervently believe that reversing the symptoms of Rett Syndrome is possible. When that day comes you will know that you played a key role in our success.
Thank you is inadequate but we say it anyway. Thank you to our gracious hosts and event committee. Thank you to our kind sponsors. Thank you to all of you who donated auction or silent auction items and to all of you who bid and won them. Thank you to all the companies and individuals who gave their time, energy and resources, often pro bono to make this event a success. And last but definitely not least, thank you to all of you for coming, for buying tickets and tables and programme space, for making pledges and donations; for listening to our story and for becoming part of it.
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season.
From all of us at Rett Syndrome Research Trust UK
