Indee's Daddy and team set to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in 2014!

April 2013

In March next year 16 Canvey lads including Indee's Daddy are to climb the 2 nd largest mountain in the world. If you can spare the smallest or the biggest amount to help them reach there 30,000 target that they want to raise for Indee's charity. When they reach the top they will hold a banner with all the treasure box children's names on. So please support them x 

The team will be holding a fundraising night next month at Concord Football Club, go to our events page for more information.

Date for the diary -Sunday 4th August we will be holding our footie tournament at Concords ground again. Details will follow soon!

Some serious toy ordering completed this month. Online shops for 5 hours and 3 more treasure boxes nearly complete. Next week hoping to send out 5 treasure boxes and 1 I pad to some amazing children who have been diagnosed with brain or spinal tumours.  People are very unaware just how many types of brain tumour there are. Some are classed terminal on diagnosis some grow fast some slow. Some don't budge they sit there for years and do nothing. Some are classed as in operable and some just are taken out. All in all though they are nasty horrible things and I'm being very polite here!!! Wish they were never invented as my small friend Lucy would say.  

If you or your work place have to choose a charity to support this year then please do consider The Indee Rose Trust. Being a smaller charity we don't receive any government grants we rely just on our own fundraising and kind donations from good people. We really do appreciate every single person who has supported our Indee's charity. You all have created so many smiles xx

This month we had 1000  'Indee Rose' treasure boxes delivered from china. Thanks to Bill Baalam for sorting it out for us.

This month we are working on 5 treasure boxes at the moment with another 8 referrals to do. One child is blind caused by the horrid tumour and another little one has learning difficulties caused by the tumour.

A New Year...

January 2013

So it's the first day of a brand new year. Happy New Year xx Another year without Indee but another year letting the world know about our wonderful girl and all the amazing children we hear about.

We will be planning events for the year ahead and we hope to have your continued support. 2013 let's create more smiles and happy memories for children who never asked to become ill xxxx

So many of the treasure box children are having there MRI scans this month. A very daunting time for all the family. The most scariest and worrying time and you try to push it to the back of your head but its always there. Fear. So we will be thinking of you all and pray for the best results. Let us know how you all get on xxxx

All to often our treasure box children have to spend very long spells in hospital. Little Zach who's only 6 has got a brain tumour and a few weeks ago he sadly had a stroke on top of everything else he has to deal with will be in hospital till some time in Febuary..

I would like to thank all those who donated money through out the year and those who sponsored holes on the captains charity day. This is a fantastic charity, that really does help so many families in their time of need. Please everyone continue to show your support, well done Jane and Russell for all the hard work you do."

Please keep supporting The Indee Rose Trust. If you want to fundraise , donate , climb mountains , take part in marathons or any other way to help raise funds then please consider helping us create more smiles. Every year we hear about more children who have been diagnosed with a brain or spinal tumour they never asked to become ill and to often they don't have much to smile about. So this year think about how you could make that happen. A smile is a curve that can put everything right if only for a short while x x

Tom's family Through there own heartache have supported Indee's Trust and have created many smiles in Tom's memory. Just a few weeks back we were told that we were to receive £6000 from cash for kids and this was all thanks to Tom. Tom you are a superstar and thanks to you and your family many more brave children like you will receive their fab treasure boxes.

We were looked after by the most amazing nurses especially Annette who indee loved so much. Our aim is to find out what the children need on the ward it may be game consoles, iPads, board games. T11 is a small ward with only a few beds and rooms but it is the forgotten ward.

Busy January!

W/C 31st January 2011

Had a very busy few weeks with treasure boxes to shop for and send. Had some lovely conversations with mum's who have a diagnosed child. They are all so positive and strong and with the right attitude anything is possible.

This week little Camille is back to Addenbrooks hospital for her surgeon to operate once again then Camille will be flown back to America to receive the proton therapy and hopefully that tumour will disappear. Camille is one tough cookie and we wish her all the luck in the world.

We also have some sad news that one of our very brave treasure box children has sadly passed away this week. Little Matt, age 5, sadly lost his battle, but he really is a superstar child and all our thoughts are with his family.  Little Matt received his treasure box last year but we sent him a little treat a few days ok and we are so pleased he received it.
These children never ask to become ill and their childhood's are taken away, so if you can help in creating a smile for a very brave child then please get in touch.
A few thank you's to...
Mary Anne and family who amaze us with there kindness when their own hearts have been broken. Katelyn, their beautiful daughter sadly passed away on December 9th 2010, we have a lovely picture of Katelyn on our gallery. The family are raising funds for The Indee Rose Trust on Justgiving So thank you so much to you all and everyone who has donated to Katelyn Donovan's page. A beautiful girl who will create so many smiles.
