Undiagnosed Children’s Day has once again proven to be a massive success. Krista joined SWAN UK when Isie was 6 months old. They were looking for support at the time and were feeling very isolated despite great support from friends and family. A simple google search found SWAN UK and they found their lives had changed; they found a community of families just like them!

charity football event for SWAN UK

On the 29th April 2016 Kristas’ son Luca and his two friends Harry and James decided to organise a charity football tournament to raise money for SWAN UK. At just 7 years old they raised an amazing £160. With a little help they booked a venue, borrowed equipment from their school, pestered all their friends to attend and sorted the teams.

It was a lovely afternoon, the sun came out and the rain held off! The atmosphere was brilliant, there were 4 teams of 5 players, the blue team came out tops! Even the Dads got a run out on pitch in the Dads VLads game..The lads won! Isie and Luca really enjoyed the afternoon as did all the players and spectators.
