Dexter's End of Cancer Treatment Party 8th December

Post by Lord_Kurze on Mon 19 Feb 2018, 23:38

This is in the info email box if someone pick it up please


Hello there,

My son Dexter is due to finish 3 and a half years of treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in December this year! He was just 4 when he was diagnosed with cancer and has been through so much over the past few years. On Saturday 8th December at 5-7 pm we have booked our local village Hall in Bowdon, Altrincham and want to throw him the most amazing end of treatment party ever, so he can celebrate with all his friends! Dexter loves star wars, but his older brother Joey who is currently 8 is absolutely obsessed with star wars and just think it would be absolutely magical if we could hire one of your guys to come at some point to the party and surprise them both. Please would it be possible to let me know how much you charge and which star wars characters would possibly be available?

I estimate that there will be around 50 kids at the party and we have already hired an entertainer we know well from hospital to do a disco. We will be asking everyone invited to the party to donate a present/voucher for the children on Ward 84, which is the cancer ward where Dexter is currently being treated at the Manchester Children's hospital. Dexter will be ringing his end of treatment bell on Tuesday 4th December on the ward and depending on costs and whether the hospital would allow it, we were also thinking it would be amazing to get a star wars character to be there to watch him and then to do a visit on the ward to meet some of the children being treated on that day.

I shall look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,

Katie Kidd

I also don't think it would be right to charge for this appearance. I'm sure, somewhere in amongst all the stuff we have between us we could dig out a couple of gifts that could be handed over on our behalf too.

As for the hospital visit, they know us, we know them....maybe via a convo with Angela who already knows how our visits work this could be arranged.

I'd approach each bit of this separately. First, let Katie know that due to the cirtumstances we won't charge but we'll still need all the relevant details about the venue, changing, parking etc.

We could ask whether, instead of charging a fee, could we hold a bucket so that parents could chuck a couple of £ in if they chose to & any money in the bucket could be handed over to Katie on the understanding that it's donated to the ward itself.

Then deal with the hospital visit, ask Katie if she knows Angela Rowe.

Jim has raffle prizes if anyone can pick them up. There may be a suitable gift.
