As well as catering for businesses and charities, we also work with a large number of individuals who order silicone wristbands for a variety of reasons. For example, to raise funds and sponsorship, for parties and celebrations, and for weddings. Emma Doherty is one of these clients.
Emma’s beautiful son, Bobby was taken ill at just 6 weeks old. Since then he has been treated at Alder Hey Hospital where he was an inpatient for four months. He has undergone several major operations including open heart surgery, diaphragm surgery, and stomach surgery. He is now back at home with a food pump and is still undergoing treatment.
Bobby’s mum has ordered a set of wristbands to sell in order to raise funds for Alder Hey, which has saved Bobby’s life on two separate occasions. The service she has received there is second to none and the nurses and staff have been amazing. The money raised from the bands will go towards helping other children in Bobby’s position. Some of the funds will go to Ronald McDonald House who housed the family for four months, free of charge, so they could be with Bobby while he received his treatment.
To follow this brave little boy’s story, Emma has set up a Facebook page.
