Chandler Materials Donate Raffle prize to CCS Windscreens. Their Manager Gemma Seyfang is 35 years old and has been diagnosed with a rare debilitating condition called Pompe Disease which only affects around 250 people in the UK.
Gemma only found this out three years ago and she's found support through the charity AGSDUK, they are only small but have become a massive help to Gemma and her family.
Gemma's partner, Kieron Stubbings, who has never ran a long distance before, has won his place in the ballot to run in the London Marathon 2020 and has decided to do this in honour of raising money for AGSDUK. He has been out training hard and is dedicated to ensure he will get across the finish line on the day.
Kieron came up with the idea to host a couple of charity events to help smash his target. They have already secured a charity bingo night event with Mace Playce in Chelmsford for the early part of next year. And to help with their fundraising efforts Chandler Materials have donated a raffle prize for the night.
