Fundraising Events in August

Oscar is getting better and stronger by the day, despite us finding out yesterday he has a bacterial infection in his gut!  Poor little man, we were devasted to hear of another setback, but he truly is a warrior - he is in such high spirits you would never imagine what is going on with him. He is one amazing little boy.  This means Oscar has to remain in isolation for much longer, to protect other children and adults around him.  Such a pity - he is such a sociable little boy, it's so unfair that he has to be kept away from people!  However, the only thing keeping us from going home right now is the fact that he can't/won't eat, so all our energies are going into making food fun and appealing again.  So far we're getting nowhere...

There are lots of #TeamOscar fundraising events confirmed for August, so PLEASE have a look to see if there are any near you or that appeal to you.  What a great way to spend a day/night out, having fun and knowing that you will be helping wee Oscar!  If your event isn't listed below, please let us know teamoscar@hotmail.co.uk
