Sharky and George are hosting a fund raising tea party for the Duchenne Children’s Trust at The Metropolitan by COMO on Sunday 8th December, 3-5pm.

The Duchenne Children’s Trust was set up by ex-Channel Four News presenter Emily Crossley and her restauranteur husband Nick after their son Eli was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy aged two and a half.

The disease affects boys predominately, with most dying in their early 20s from heart or respiratory failure. Currently there is no cure but there is significant hope – research into the disease has progressed rapidly in the last 20 years to the point where scientists know what causes it and almost, how to fix it. Several different types of treatment are in the late stages of being developed and some are even in clinical trial.

The charity’s mission is quite simply to raise money to give to the best global research effort – to fund a treatment or cure in time to save Eli’s life and the hundreds and thousands of other boys like him.

About The Author

SHARKY SAYS: George's first car was a taxi, his first house was a boat and his first award at school was for being a ‘jolly good egg'. Boring bits about George are that he studied Biology at University and loves talking about his project on Xenopus Levis… or frogs! George is ALWAYS cheerful and keeps everyone at S&G happy and in check. He makes sure only the funniest games are played, the best pranks are performed and the silliest hair styles are worn. George grew up near Bishop Stortford and plays for the local cricket side… but not very well! It was at Bristol University that Charlie & George cut their teeth on the city's children's party circuit, leading to the creation of Sharky & George. By popular demand they are opening a Bristol office this summer, bringing their unique brand of children's entertainment back to where it all began 10 years ago.
