Our latest Local Achievers award is in conjunction with the Toma Fund (details at www.tomafund.org), a north east success story, born out of real tragedy.
Jordan Thompson died five years ago and his parents set up the Toma Fund Children’s Cancer Charity in his memory and now it is also dedicated to the memory of Jordan’s cousin Sophie Atay, who also died of this awful disease.
The TOMA Fund is a charity which supports children, teenagers, young people and their families in the North East and Cumbria who have been affected by a diagnosis of childhood cancer.
On behalf of NUST members we asked the Toma Fund for worthy local achievers for the West Brom match this weekend and Ben Murdock and his mam Liz attended the match as our guests.
The Toma Fund are helping Ben and his family as he receives treatment in his fight against the disease and Ben & Liz were on hand to help cheer on the lads for their fourth successive victory in the Premier League.
Please read on and help in any way you can to assist the Toma Fund in supporting Ben and other young people who find themselves in the position of having to fight cancer.
