A woman held a fundraising event was held at the weekend for a children’s charity, to say thank you for all of the work they did to help her son who suffers from a life-long condition.

Chrystalla Delur, 25, from Lower Rainham Road, Rainham, organised a day of fundraising for Great Ormond Street, at St Michael’s Church, in Mian Road, Gidea Park, to show her gratitude for everything they had done for her son.

She said: “I’m really grateful to Great Ormond Street for doing all they could for my son and for helping us get through a very difficult time.”

Chrystalla’s son was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus, a condition where fluids build up in the brain, when he was 13-weeks-old and even though he will live with this condition for the rest of his life, his condition is now stable.

She said: “I really couldn’t thank them enough for all they have done.”

Family and friends got together at the church, where they could enjoy the bouncy castle, listen to the DJ and singer, as well as try their luck at a raffle

Chrystalla managed to raise about £550 on the day.

She said: “I think this was a good amount since it was my first charity event but I do hope to make it something I do every year.”
