What an incredible afternoon we had on Friday, 7th October at our Alex’s Wish Annual Supporters Lunch celebrating our 10th Anniversary at The Novotel Hotel in Leicester. It was a fun-filled, informative, celebratory afternoon thanking our much-valued and much-loved supporters for the amazing work they do to help all boys living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. You are our superheros!!!

I cannot thank our main event sponsors enough for making this event possible Nelsons and Mortgage Advice Bureau Charnwood both Glynis Wright and Mitul Gadhia did a beautiful speech about why they support our cause.

I’d like to thank our Chair of Trustees, Alexandra Slack for comparing the afternoon, Amy Littleton and the team at Duchenne UK for giving a great talk about how our two charities collaborate to make the biggest difference to everyone living with Duchenne. To our amazing team Zoe Edwards, Heidi Eastell and Heather Stone for your hard work, dedication and continued enthusiasm, you did a wonderful job organizing this event and to our amazing volunteer Lisa Frost.

Thank you to our ‘Services in Kind’ partners Steven Havers Business Photography for capturing the afternoon perfectly (all event photos below), Delta Global for our promotional goody bags, Flexpress Ltd for our event promotional materials. Thank you also to Dave Ricks – Light Up Creative for supporting us with AV.

Thank you to Claire Stafford at The Vanilla Pod Cookery for the most beautiful celebratory cake ever which was auctioned off raising £470.

The Novotel Hotel in Leicester did us proud with a delicious lunch, such an amazing venue perfect for this type of occasion.

Thank you to everyone who came along, listened intently and rose to the challenge of signing yourselves up for more events in 2023. You made our afternoon incredibly special. We hope you took away lots and know that you have made a big difference to everyone living with Duchenne. We can’t wait to see what the next 12 months brings in our fight to conquer Duchenne for this generation of boys.
