Two-and-a-half-year-old Oscar Felton suffers from Type 1 diabetes, a lifelong condition that stops the body producing enough insulin, and has been receiving treatment at our Stephanie Marks Centre that has transformed him into the healthy boy he is now (pictured above).

Oscar's parents, Will and Apryl Felton from West Byfleet were so impressed by the care they received that they organised a dinner-dance at Cobham Rugby Club and raised £2,700.

Apryl said: "Everyone was so amazing in making us feel confident and comfortable with everything. I wanted to raise the money to make sure that other children and their families can get the same support because the support we got was so amazing."

The money raised will go towards activity days for the children and families, tailored to their age range.
