Binfield Tennis Club raises more than £1250 for Children’s Liver Disease charity – Wokingham.Today

Binfield Tennis Association’s charity day raised over £1250 for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF), a charity particularly close to the heart of one of its members.

John Pascoe, and his wife Claire have received information and support from CLDF ever since their daughter, Isabella, now 15, was diagnosed with the rare and incurable disease, biliary atresia and received a life-saving liver transplant when she was still a baby.

John said: “Children’s Liver Disease Foundation have always been there for us and continue to support Isabella.

“Like many small charities, things have been very tough since the pandemic and the cost of living crisis.

“I wanted to be able to give something back and was touched that my fellow club members not only agreed to a charity day but supported it so enthusiastically. I’m delighted with our fundraising total.”

Rebecca Cooper, Chief Executive of Children’s Liver Disease Foundation said: “CLDF is the only UK charity dedicated to fighting all childhood liver diseases, by providing information and emotional support, funds for research and a voice for all those affected. In order to do this however, we rely on voluntary donations, so we are so grateful that Binfield Tennis Association supported us in this way and had great fun doing so. This really is community fundraising at its best.”
