Richard Paterson, founder of Thea’s Trust said: “ Thank you to everyone who attended the event. It was a fantastic evening and we raised vital funds for Thea’s Trust.”

Richard and his wife Samantha formed Thea’s Trust after their youngest daughter Thea was diagnosed with MPS I Hurler Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder affecting 10 in one million children.

Sadly Thea lost her battle with the disease earlier this year and Richard and Samantha are doing everything they can to raise awareness of MPS disease and help other families who have been affected.
