Ted with the Budgens staffThe staff at Budgens in Stony Stratford have been selling Ted's Gang raffle tickets to help raise money for medical research on to Shwachman Diamond Syndrome.
Budgens have donated a £50 Christmas Hamper as a prize. Pop in to the store in Cofferidge Close, Stony Stratford, to buy your tickets.
So far, they have raised over £600 for Ted's Gang.
Budgens have some other fundraising plans to, so watch this space for details!
Ted's Gang is named after a boy from Stony Stratford called Ted who has a horrible genetic condition called Shwachman Diamond Syndrome. It affects his bone marrow, immunity, growth, digestion and gives him a high chance of developing acute myeloid leukaemia.
Ted's Gang was set up by Ted's parents to offer some support to others that might find themselves in their position, to create more awareness of this very rare condition, and to raise essential funds.
They raise money in lots of fun and daft ways and we don't give any of the money to Ted - it all goes to medical research.
