Welcome to our 2011 Advent Calendar, each day you can unlock a door of treats from rare photo’s, videos, magazines, Brendan’s dolls and giveaways. With thanks to Kieran White for designing this years background. The doors will open at 12.00pm GMT each day. Please also take 2 minutes to read about Joss Searchlight below the calendar.
Could you also take 1 moment to read the following about Joss Parkes. My good friends lost their son Joss at the beginning of the year to a brain tumour. Many of you may recall this video below I shared with you over a year ago of Joss playing drums.
Joss was the longest known child survivor of a brainstem glioma. He was given just weeks to live in 2005. Joss’s parents with the help of complementary therapies, prayer and maybe a fair degree of luck, managed to give Joss a happy fulfilled life for nearly another six years.
I am proud to be a trustee of a new charity called Joss Searchlight set up in Joss’s name, with the aim of supporting children and families where a brain tumour has been diagnosed.
In these difficult financial times, fund raising is hard. If you are moved by Joss’s story, and feel you can help, we’d be grateful for a donation or a small purchase from our website at www.jossparkessearchlight.org.uk
Thank you and Merry Christmas from all of us at Ultimate Eurythmics.
