At Picture the Stars we like to give back when we can; we recently heard of Ellie’s story and the need for Jasper’s fund. She is a 17 year old girl based in Maidstone who suffers with Tourette’s Syndrome, anxiety, joint problems & Irens syndrome. This unfortunately isn’t currently in the criteria in able to claim funding for an assistance dog. She has had to postpone going to college because she is too anxious to attend on her own.
Her previous assistance dog unfortunately had to retire early due to an unforeseen illness; since this her tics have become worse and her confidence has receded. This is where Jasper came in! He is an 8 month old puppy that need specialist training which is a total cost of £10’000. And this is where we need your help, they are asking to donate any amount you can on their gofundme campaign. Any amount you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
To go find out more of her story check out her article in the ITV news here.
They are also organising a fundraising fun day and dog show on the 13th May. To raise even more money for Jasper’s fund. This event will be held at the Hook and Hatchet Inn on Church road in Hucking. We have offered to enter a voucher prize into their raffle to also help raise money for this amazing cause! Please see the attached flyer for more details.
