Help Raise £50,000 To Fund Life-Saving Surgery For Grace

Be part of the Big Picnic in the Park at Calverley Grounds on 16th June & help raise £50,000 to fund life-saving surgery for Tunbridge Wells teenager Grace Jackson-Matthews.

Grace, 14 and the eldest of three inseparable sisters, suffers multiple vascular compression syndromes, where arteries and veins are crushed causing debilitating 24/7 pain and in inability to eat and digest food. Since September last year, Grace has lost 20kg.

The best hope Grace has is having major multiple-decompression surgery, currently unavailable here in the UK. Grace’s parents, Joanna and Dean, have launched a crowd-funding campaign to save their daughter’s life. To support them, visit justgiving.com/crowdfunding/joanna-jackson-matthew?utm_term=kzZpvGvzY

• You can also help raise vital funds by coming along to the Big Picnic in the Park for Grace on 16th June in Calverley Grounds in the heart of Tunbridge Wells. Bring your own picnic and pay £5 – all proceeds go to Grace’s fund. Join the fun from 12noon and enjoy festival glitter, henna, face-painting, balloon animals and much more….
