When tragedy struck a family at the Bluebell development in Bingham where sales executive Lynda Price works for our Midlands region, she was moved to do her bit to help.
Despite being a novice runner, she completed the Lincoln 10km Road Race and raised over £1,000 for Spinal Muscular Atrophy Support UK which raises awareness of the genetic disorder which claimed the lives of twin baby boys.
Their grandmother, Lynn Earp, was one of the first people to move to Bluebell to be closer to her daughter Heidi who was expecting twins in early 2013.
But following a healthy birth, the family later discovered that little Max and Leo were suffering from a rare genetic disease, Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Tragically, it claimed the life of both boys at just six months old.
Grandmother Lynn said: “I hope that the money raised by kind and caring people, such as Lynda, enables genetic research to ensure, that in the near future, families never have to experience a loss and sorrow such as ours.”
Lynda said: “As a mum of grown-up children myself, the heartache must be beyond imaginable, and I am so grateful to everyone who has sponsored me.”
We added £450 to Lynda’s sponsorship fund, which has reached around £1,350 and was accepted by Emily Goodman from Spinal Muscular Atrophy Support UK when she visited Bluebell and met Lynn.
