Welcome to our news page, here you can learn about what's been happening at Toma Fund.
HUGE thanks to John Thompson
We never cease to be amazed here at Toma Fund by the kindness and generosity shown by the community to the brave youngsters that we support.
Angell Tyrell is a very brave 17 year old young lady who is battling her way through treatment for Lymphoma and this means that her chemo and other drugs are administered through an implanted port. This port has to be kept as clean and dry as possible and doing this was causing Angell a lot of distress and anxiety as the family home only had a bath and no shower.
Toma Fund agreed to a grant for the installation of a shower but Angell got her shower quicker than we expected when local business Thompson Plumbing, Heating & Gas Services of Ryton came to the rescue and supplied and fitted the shower absolutely free of charge!!
John Thompson, owner of the company said "We were asked to give a quote for the installation of the shower but were so touched by Angell and her story that we wanted to do what we could to help. We approached our supplier, the Plumb Centre in Prudhoe, and with their help we supplied and fitted the shower as a gift from us. We really do hope that it makes life a little easier for Angell and her family."
THANK YOU so so much to Thompson Plumbing, Heating & Gas Services and to the Plumb Centre, Prudhoe for this very generous gift - you have really made a huge difference to Angell's life.
