image: Together we supported Ergo! Together we supported Ergo!

SCCE’s Family Day on June 9th brought together 200€ in ticket sales, and as SCCE put up an equal amount we could together donate 400€ totally to Lastefond.

I’m happy to announce that the money will partly finance a functional bed for Ergo, a 15 year old boy in Nõo. Agnes Männik – Member of the Board, and Marju Tomp – Fund Volunteer, from the Tartu University Hospital Children's Fund, have written me a mail about Ergo and I quote:

“Resulting from a birth injury Ergo has severe limb paralysis and is incapable of moving himself. He needs day and night care and monitoring. Ergo has parents who care and do their very utmost for him, but the special functional bed required is too expensive and without help the family couldn’t have afford it.”

“So, a good deed has been done to Ergo. The amount required for the functional bed was 1.175€ and we now managed to get the amount together with SCCE donating 400€, Nõo municipality contributing with 350€, and Tartu University Hospital Children's Fund providing the remaining 425€”, tells Agnes and Marju.

As SCCE’s income is based on membership fees, all of our members have contributed to this year’s Family Day donation, but I would like to put a special thank you to our main sponsor Peter Jaegerstierna and his team at Restaurant & Lounge Pirita Pärl, as well as to all who participated in and supported this year’s Family Day fund raising:
