Luke's Army charity Watershed film show

A Nailsea mum with lots of help from her lovely family and friends has raised more than £50,000 to find a cure for a rare muscle wasting disease.

Little Luke Cramphorn was diagnosed, aged just four years old, with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy within days of starting his first term at school in September 2017.

His mum Lisa and her BFFs have organised sponsored stunts including sky dives, mufti days, Santa’s Run, cake and craft sales and much more.

Emmerdale soap star and London-based comedienne Louise Howells who went to school in Nailsea and is close friends with Lisa rallied support and contributed more than £3,000 to the funds. 

Louise did a sponsored Sober October to collect monies.

The latest fundraiser is on the first weekend of advent with a charity showing of the festive classic Arthur Christmas at the Watershed in Bristol.

Lisa said: “Nothing beats a festive Christmas film on the big screen - so this year why not join us at Watershed cinema on Saturday, December 1, to start advent the right way with a charity screening of Aardman's modern Christmas classic, Arthur Christmas.

“There will be two screenings - 10am and noon, as well as the opportunity to buy hand-crafted Christmas cards and gifts at our mini Christmas market.

“Book your tickets by emailing sofieboddypr@gmail.com and stating which time screening you would like.

“All we ask is a small donation to Luke's Army to help support our fundraising to help find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

“Our thanks go to Tesco for sponsoring this event and helping us to raise even more for our cause.

“Thank you - and happy almost Christmas!"

In the new year at the beautiful Old Down Manor at Tockington which is north of Bristol the fundraising team is hosting a gala party.

The plan is to host a drinks reception with entertainment, three course meal followed by live music from Bring Down the House and late disco on Saturday, February 1.

Bring Down The House is a 14 piece Bristol wedding band providing a potent cocktail of funk, rock, disco, Motown, soul and blues.

There are only three tables left - click HERE if you want to go.

If you are unable to make either of these dates you can still contribute to the fund which now stands at £52,762 more than half the £100,000 target by going to the Just Giving page by clicking HERE.

The TEK Hut

 

The TEK Hut was started by Ben Parker in the summer of 2018.

For 12 years Ben had been one of the team at The ICT Workshop which provided a wide variety of computer services to Nailsea, Clevedon, Yatton, Backwell and even Weston-Super-Mare. 

Ben felt it right to continue the same great service customers had previously experienced but under new branding for a new business and The Tek Hut was born.

​Trading at the familiar location in Nailsea, The Tek Hut will continue to offer the same cost effective, new laptops and PCs, upgrades, onsite support for homes and businesses through to a wide range of workshop services and accessories.
