Zacharys’ Shack aim to help families that have a child with ANY life threatening or life limiting illness, not necessarily just cancer, it could be any life threatening illness that requires regular hospital visits. As parents to children ourselves that have died from cancer, we are aware that the treatment to try and help them can leave the child with disabilities of varying degrees.
At present, we have just one caravan at Butlins Skegness but it is our aim to fundraise for another one to enable us to accommodate more children. The caravn is available to children with life threatening illnesses in the Northamptonshire area covered by Kettering General Hospital.
The Roary Club is delighted to have raised £1000.00 at its recent Golf Day.
