Earlier this week we needed to contact one of the DIPG clinical experts to assist in a grant application. As well as offering to support our application he re-affirmed that Katie’s Trust is making a difference to children with a DIPG and their families – “you continue to do amazing work to help families like yourself”.no comments
Big thanks to Johnny, Dave and Charlie for helping us raise over £900 on Sunday at the Etape Caledonia! Big hand to Johnny who nearly finished on a unicycle!!

A HUGE thanks to mum, dad, Chris, Jo, Brian, Colin and Cammie for serving up the soup, sandwiches, tea and cakes at the hall yesterday. A special thanks to Mandy and Scott Irvine (Harmonies in Wood) for the wonderful ‘journey’ sculpture raffle prize and for donating 20% of the proceeds from the sale of fused glass/jewellery. In total the event raised a massive £1874, plus there was further £136 from KMT merchandise ((thanks Cammie!). We would really like to thank the guests for putting their hands in their pockets to generously support the Trust. Here are some photos – click here.no comments

Angela Swinden found out about Katie’s Trust through Alison Easto (Mirren’s auntie) and offered to raise funds for the Trust whilst running the Belfast Half Marathon. Although Angela has participated in many running events, this one proved to be a real test because she was not well on the day! Not only did Angela complete the 13-mile course, she also raised a huge £640 in the space of ten days. A massive thanks to Angela, her husband and everyone who donated through JustGiving (https://www.justgiving.com/Angela-BelfastHalfMarathon/).no comments
