A mum of two haemophiliac boys has organised a series of events – including a men’s waxing night – to raise sponsorship money ahead of her once in a lifetime trek across Iceland.
Emma Hart, of Hemel Hempstead, is taking on the challenge in July next year to raise awareness of the blood disorder.
It affects her sons Samuel, seven, who will be starting Chaulden Junior School in September, and four-year-old Chaulden Infants pupil Oliver, four.
Emma is already halfway towards her sponsorship target, which will be donated to the Haemophilia Society.
Emma said: “The boys don’t really understand what is going on at the moment, they know mummy is going away but they are very excited about raising money for the Haemophilia Society. I need to raise at least £2,000 to participate in the trek, but I want to raise much more than that if possible.”
The waxing night at The Tudor Rose pub in Chaulden will take place on the evening of Friday, September 6, before a fun day at the venue from 2pm on the next day, Saturday. This will feature stalls, face painting, a barbecue, live bands and a disco.
Emma will also be selling artwork by haemophiliac children and raffle tickets with prizes from days out to driving lessons.
To take part in the waxing session, pick up a sponsorship form from the Tudor Rose or email Emma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Emma is also collecting sponsorhip online at justgiving.com/emmahart10.
