Update on Tessa

Wonderful news from Miss Waters about her little daughter Tessa. Tessa has been receiving treatment for cancer for over a year, and her latest scans show that all the cancer is gone. This is just amazing news and we are all so delighted. Tessa will go to the USA shortly to begin some further treatment. Thank you to everyone who helped fundraise for Tessa. We will keep all the family in our prayers.

Watch our lovely video of Front line artwork and our virtual choir are just amazing!
