A family from Stevenage whose daughter suffers from Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis met with Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, in recognition of their fund-raising efforts to help sufferers and raise awareness of the disease.

Stephen McPartland MP said, “It was wonderful to meet Savannah and her parents. We had a great chat and she is full of energy and ambition.  Sadly, arthritis is still commonly associated as an older person’s disease. It is important to raise awareness that it also affects young people to reduce the hurdles sufferers and their parents have to overcome."

The La Gaille family has raised over £2,500 for the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society to help support Savannah, who has JIA, and other young people with the condition. JIA is an auto-immune disease, which causes inflammation in the joints, although it can also affect the eyes and other organs.

There are approximately 12,000 children in the UK with JIA, which represents 1 in every 1,000 children under the age of 16, and there are approximately 1,200 new cases of JIA diagnosed each year in the UK.

The Bedwell Residents Group raised over £100 for the charity SPANA at a special World Tea Party with Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage.

Stephen McPartland MP, said, “It is great to see so much support from local residents for SPANA’s work, helping working animals in developing countries to receive the veterinary care they urgently need. The generosity in our town is amazing and shows a real community spirit.”

Chris Oak, who is HR & Facilities Manager at SPANA, and Chairman of Bedwell Residents’ Group, said, “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came to the World Tea Party and gave their support. The generous donations made will be a great boost for SPANA and will help improve the welfare of many working animals around the world.”

By transporting goods and people, these working donkeys, horses, camels and elephants play a vital role in supporting the livelihoods of millions of the world’s poorest families. However, without SPANA, they often have no access to veterinary care, or their owners have no means to pay for it.
