Milly is a brave young girl who is very close to the owners of The Pool Hub. She was born with Cancer and had a transplant at a young age. After many years living with her new Liver it finally gave up in November 2013. After that she spent 8 months in hospital, 4 months of which were in an induced coma. Her parents were told she wouldn’t make it 4 times and every time she pulled through. After multiple organ failure, sepsis and a Pulmonary Haemorrhage, she was finally well enough to come home.
On her first night home she had a stroke and has now lost the use of the entire right hand side of her body. She is by far the bravest 12 year old we have ever met and the most positive kid you’ll ever see.
She desperately wants a Pug and we – her friends and family – just want to see her walking her dog along the beach.
On August 30th we are hosting a Poolathon for her. Our aim is to raise the £1000 needed to buy her a pug and donate whatever may be over that target to the ward that looked after her so well for 8 months in Kings Hospital.
The event will run from 8am to midnight and the day will include all manner of Pool & Snooker activities. It will be a test of all of your endurance!
The venue for the 2014 Poolathon is The Lido, Margate, Kent, CT9 1RX.
Various events during the day will have different entry fees:
Singles – £2
Scotch Doubles – £5
Killer – 50p
Round Robin – £3
