Treat for fundrais­ers at cen­tre

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

A LUX­U­RI­OUS char­ity event of­fer­ing treats for res­i­dents was a big hit.

The first Hamp­ton Treats For All event took place at the Hamp­ton vale Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, 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 a per­son’s blood sup­ply and crit­i­cally oxy­gen, to the brain dur­ing labour. Sur­vivors may go on to de­velop cere­bral palsy, have long-term vis­ual or hear­ing prob­lems or de­velop learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties.

At the event there was a 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 is hoped the event will be­come a reg­u­lar fix­ture in the Hamp­ton cal­en­dar in the fu­ture.
