Ollie’s Army is a charity which raises awareness and funds for those with Batten disease, which is a cruel condition that robs seemingly healthy children of their ability to walk, talk, swallow and see, whilst causing uncontrollable seizures and movement disorders.
Children with Batten disease cannot make an enzyme responsible for eliminating waste that builds up in the brain. Eventually, children with Batten disease become blind, tube fed, completely dependent on others for all their needs, and unable to communicate.
The event to support Ollie’s Army will take place at Penwortham Priory Academy, Crow Hills Road, Penwortham.
They are also running a football card, prize raffle, auctioning a Preston North End shirt, Manchester City tour tickets, Liverpool match tickets and more, to raise additional funds for Ollie’s Army.
