All our latest news and stories of interest from The Three Acres...
A charity close to our hearts
01 June 2018
Recently, Tom Truelove, his wife Lauren, sister Chloe and other close family and friends braced the cold waters of Windermere to swim two miles in open water for Tom and Lauren's son, Freddie.
Freddie Truelove who was recently diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome at six months old. This very rare and severe form of epilepsy affects around 1 in 19,000 children. It is difficult to control, usually refractory to medication, and can often be accompanied by other comorbidities.
Since Freddie's diagnosis, we have adopted Dravet Syndrome UK as our chosen charity at The 3 Acres. We're incredibly proud of the team's achievement in the Great North Swim, raising a phenomenal £30k for Dravet Syndrome UK, which is a hugely significant amount for this little-known charity. Further fundraising will go into genetic research.
