The annual Dong Chen football competition took place on Thursday 29th March. For the second year running, team Germany (13DCW) won. An amazing total of £4814.42 was raised, some £700 more than in 2017.
All the proceeds will go to the Pippa Goodman Fund.
You may have heard that Pippa (an ex-Langton student) graduated last summer with a first with distinction in Geography from Magdalene College, Cambridge.
Pippa was recently diagnosed with a debilitating autoimmune condition called Lipoedema. She fell ill just before graduating from the University of Cambridge and her career as a business consultant is in jeopardy from this illness. As she has an aggressive form of the condition, if treatment cannot be funded for her, she risks being in a wheelchair by the age of 25 and having to live with chronic autoimmune complications for the rest of her life.
After seeing a couple of consultants the only treatment is surgery but this is not funded by the NHS and has a whopping price tag of £65k. Pippa and her parents are trying to harness the power of people and the internet to raise the money she needs, our first target is £10k for her first operation which we has been scheduled for May.
