Tom Woodley Fundraiser

7th September 2021

We were thrilled to find out that a recent auction organised by Tedburn St Mary Football Club has raised over £4000 for Tom Woodley.   Tom, who is the Manager of the Kings Arms in Tedburn St Mary, has been undergoing treatment for Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO), a condition that affects his spine and he has lost feeling from the chest down.

Tom has been an integral part of the Tedburn St Mary Football Team, helping to look after them since he arrived 8 years ago.   The Football Club decided to step in and help raise some money for Tom and his family and arranged this amazing event.  People came together, donated items and bid at auction the in April.

It is very uncertain what level of support Tom is going to need in the future and so we were happy to donate some money to their fundraiser.

Well done to the Tedburn St Mary Football team on such a successful fundraiser and we send our best wishes to Tom and his family.
