ROYAL SOCIETY OF ST. GEORGE DONATION TO PSP
November 19 2015
At the November lunch for the Seahaven Branch of The Royal Society of St George, which was held at the Inn on the Park at Deanlands on Tuesday, a special donation was made to committee member Liz Holland who has been raising funds to support research into PSP, Progressive Superanuclear Palsy, a seriously debilitating disease of the brain for which there is currently no treatment.
She had already raised £2270, much of which she gained when she dyed her hair pink as a special fund raising effort.
At the branch's Trafalgar Dinner in Alfriston in October, it was decided that the proceeds of that night's raffle, along with an auction and other donations, should go to support her valiant efforts.
As a result branch President, Laurie Holland presented Liz with a cheque for £500. In reply Liz explained the effects of the disease saying: "This wonderful gift will go towards research to try to find treatment for this little known disease."
