Huge congratulations and well done to our runner Jennifer Logan who took part in the 38th annual London Marathon for Saving Faces.
On Friday 20th December 2013, Jaia underwent surgery which was carried out by Professor Hutchison, to remove a haemangioma on the bridge of her nose. We are incredibly happy to hear that Jaia is doing well nearly four years on after her surgery. In July 2017, the family held a charity event with a lot of delicious food, a jewellery sale and a raffle to help raise money for Saving Faces. Lisa, a saxophone player, also donated her time to play at the event for free.
The event raised a wonderful amount of £400!
“It was a beautiful day and well enjoyed by all those that attended. We still thank you as a charity and Dr Hutchison for all he did for Jaia, who is well and happy.” – Kim Uppal, Aunt of Jaia

On the 17th of June, Gwendolen Davis celebrated her 80th birthday by raising funds for Saving Faces! She celebrated in style with a fundraising party at the Queen Elizabeth Public House in Chingford. Seventy guests from 16 different countries were invited to a buffet lunch. The event also coincided with Jo Cox’s husband’s request for the celebration of things we have in common rather than concentrating on our differences.
A group of ex-art students of Somerset College of Art in the 1960’s, decided to hold an exhibition of their work and titled it the ‘Then & Now’ at the CICCIC Gallery. Whilst organising the exhibition, the students were told of the untimely death of Geoff Rigden, an abstract artist and a much admired past student from the 60’s who had died in January 2016.
If you think climbing up Kilimanjaro to Uhuru Peak to raise funds for schools in Africa and head and neck cancer patients is enough, think again!
The 2016 London Marathon takes place on Sunday the 24th of April. We are proud to say, we have three fantastic runners who are raising money for Saving Faces.
