Each year, LLS supports a local charity selected by the President with the aim of raising funds at various events that we host throughout the year.

Newly elected President Glynis Wright has selected one charity for her presidential year 2019/2020: Alex’s Wish.

Alex’s Wish is a charity set-up to eradicate Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an aggressive form of Muscular Dystrophy that affects 1 in every 3,500 boys born and results in progressive muscle wasting.

Glynis’s first event as president, the Summer Garden Party, was such a success that she made a bumper donation to Alex’s Wish of £712.50, and there will be plenty more opportunities to raise money throughout her presidential year.
