An auction has brought fundraising for baby Martin Stokes – the one-year-old from Cranbrook who has a terminal disease – to more than £15,000.
A recent sale of show-home furniture by Taylor Wimpey has raised £4,500, adding to the £10,703 already raised to improve Martin’s quality of life and to help his family.
Martin has Krabbe disease. His life expectancy is less than two years.
Melissa Langton, of Taylor Wimpey, said: “We’re pleased with how successful the auction went, as it shows just how willing people are to help Martin and his family. It means a great deal to us, to be able to support our residents through a tough ordeal, and we hope the money raised will help to create a better life for Martin.”
