Going without the ‘sweet stuff’ raises over £1,300 for SAS

Emma Harris, aged 9, the daughter of brain training therapist Jennie McBride, decided to raise some funds for Success After Stroke in memory of her dear friend, James MacMillan, who sadly passed away earlier this year.  James had a long association with SAS and was also its Chairman of Trustees at one time.  Emma originally hoped to raise in the region of £200 by going without sweets, biscuits, cakes, ice cream, chocolate, crisps, fizzy drinks and other ‘treat’ foods for one month.  Emma faced many challenges during the month, not least of which was the fact that she chose to go without ice cream during one of our hottest summers on record!  Despite the many temptations put in her way, Emma showed immense determination and stuck to her task, raising over a whopping £1,300.  This is a great achievement and we are all very proud of Emma.  Thank you!
