We are donating two of our beautiful bags for auction at the ‘Sky High Ball’ at the Millbank Tower in London on 28th August. The ball is to raise money for a very worthy charity called Harrison's Fund www.harrisonsfund.org. Our designers school friend’s young son, Harrison was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in January 2011. It is a muscle wasting disease which will eventually take his life. There is currently no cure so is 100% fatal. Funding into research is either not happening or terribly slow so they have set up a charity called Harrison's Fund to raise money to fund the much needed research. If you’d like to know more about this amazing project to help young children or to give a donation, please visit their website. Harrison's Fund
