New char­ity event in Hamp­ton

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

HAMP­TON res­i­dents will be able to raise money for char­ity at a new fundrais­ing event start­ing in the town­ship.

The first Hamp­ton Treats For All event will take place this week­end rais­ing money for The Rosie Cam­paign.

The Rosie Cam­paign is rais­ing money for re­search and treat­ment of Hy­poxic-is­chemic En­cephalopa­thy (HIE).

HIE de­vel­ops when there is an in­ter­rup­tion of blood sup­ply and crit­i­cally oxy­gen, to the brain dur­ing labour.

This oc­curs in be­tween one or two of ev­ery 1,000 births and has a high risk of death or se­ri­ous neuro-dis­abil­ity.

Sur­vivors may go on to de­velop cere­bral palsy, have long-term vis­ual or hear­ing prob­lems, de­velop learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties and many have pro­longed seizures which can be dif­fi­cult to treat.

At the Hamp­ton event, there will be a va­ri­ety of stalls from lo­cal shops and busi­nesses, a Min­nie Mouse mas­cot, bouncy cas­tle, face painter, Faye and the Desert Dancers and a char­ity raf­fle.

It will take place on Satur­day, May 5 at the Hamp­ton Vale Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, in Ste­wartby Av­enue, Hamp­ton Vale be­tween 1.15pm and 5pm.

It is hoped that the event will be­come a reg­u­lar fix­ture at the com­mu­nity cen­tre, pos­si­bly be­ing held once ev­ery three months.

All res­i­dents are in­vited to come along to sup­port the char­ity.
