Helping Little Angels donates to cancer centre
Tayyaba and Mohammed Lohar have been a part of the Helping Little Angels charity since it began 14 years ago, and now they have helped the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity in supporting cancer patients.
At the beginning of 2018, Mohammed was diagnosed with stage three bowel cancer and began having surgery and chemotherapy.
Tayyaba, his wife, said: “The treatment and care he received was second to none and we couldn’t thank the hospital enough for returning his health.
“We have both supported various charities in the past and always try to do what we can whenever we can.”
Helping Little Angels is a charity that fundraises for those in need all over the world. This includes running orphanages, schools and projects such as tree plantation, water wells and vocational training.
As the couple have been working with the charity since the beginning, they asked the team if they could fundraise for QEHB Charity, and so they organised the Garden Picnic.
The event included food, stalls and games and took place in the couple’s back garden. With a huge turnout they managed to raise £2,500!
Cathryn Worth, Fundraising Manager at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, said: “A huge thank you goes to Tayyaba, Mohammed and everyone at Helping Little Angels that took part. People are being diagnosed with cancer every day and this money will really help us and the staff here at QEHB to go over and above what the NHS can fund.
“By providing added extras for staff, patients and their families, we are able to make a huge difference to people who are being treated here.”
