Community rallies round for Mia
In May 2016, Mia Chambers was diagnosed with high risk neuroblastoma when she was four-years-old.
Mia’s family would like her to access a clinical trial as additional cancer therapy in the hope that it will help prevent a dangerous relapse.
Director of HARP Funeral Services Carwyn Iles and son Dafydd wanted to do something to help Mia Chambers when they heard about her family’s goal to raise funds for Mia to travel to America to access the trial. The firm held a charity car wash at the funeral home on Pant Road, Dowlais, on Saturday 1 April.
Everyone at HARP Funeral Services was keen to be involved and helped out. All the staff and even their families volunteered their time and efforts.
Dafydd said: “We had a great response from the staff, and even our Autoglym sales rep offered to donate products when he heard about the charity car wash for Mia.”
More than 100 cars turned up on the day, including Mia with her family, and at some points during the day cars were queuing out on to the main road. The event was a huge success, and thanks to the generosity of those who came a massive £2,100 was raised on the day.Tags: Carwyn Iles, Dafydd Iles, fundraising, HARP, HARP Funeral Services, Mia Chambers, neuroblastoma
