Children’s Christmas appeal raises a smile

A Valli Group practice set up a gift donation scheme over Christmas

A charitable Christmas appeal set up by AH Mertons Opticians has resulted in hundreds of gifts being donated to patients at children’s hospitals.

The appeal was set up by the Valli Group practice in support of William’s Gift, a charity launched by the parents of six year old William Fenton.

William was born with a rare form of Hirschsprung’s disease and was on the transplant register for a new bowel, liver and stomach for four months before he died in December, 2019.

AH Mertons Opticians supported William’s Gift by encouraging donations of toys and books for children or care packages for parents through the William’s Christmas Smile Appeal.
