Aer­o­bathon raises cash in mem­ory of baby Ted

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

PRI­MARY School stu­dents have raised a fan­tas­tic £500 in mem­ory of a very spe­cial lit­tle boy.

Ted French, whose par­ents Dee and Gareth live in Mac­cles­field, sadly died when he was just five months old.

He was born with a ge­netic dis­or­der called mi­to­chon­drial dis­ease which causes cells to have no en­ergy and means tis­sues or or­gans can’t work prop­erly.

Chil­dren at Puss Bank Pri­mary School, where Ted’s grandma works, took part in an aer­o­bathon to raise money for the Lily Foun­da­tion, which funds re­search into the dis­ease.

And af­ter count­ing up the to­tal, they do­nated £500 to the char­ity.

Julie Sut­cliffe, from the school, said: “Af­ter a very suc­cess­ful aer­o­bathon, Friends of Puss Bank Com­mit­tee, on be­half of Puss Bank School do­nated £500 to the Lily Foun­da­tion.”

A Mag­nif­i­cent Mileathon, or­gan­ised in mem­ory of Ted in May, raised £2,000 for the char­ity.
