An Epsom family are holding a charity golf day this month in aid of a charity close to their hearts.

April Spurgeon's son, Finley, is 19 months old and has cystic fibrosis, a genetic condition involving the overproduction of mucus which currently is complicated to treat.

All money raised from the fun day out at the Banstead Down Golf Club on Thursday, May 24, will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

April said: "It is about raising awareness to this invisible condition that affects more than 10,400 people in the UK. 1 in 25 of us carries this faulty gene.

"My son Finley looks completely healthy - and to use that dreaded word ‘normal’ - on the outside but he has to take a whole concoction of medication in order to keep him well.

"Finley also has to take medication every time he eats any food containing fat, this is called Creon.

"This is caused by his pancreas being blocked with mucus, so the enzymes help the body digest the fat within the food.

"He also has to take in extra salt as the CF gene affects the movement of salt and water in and out of his cells.

"A build up of mucus in the lungs also causes chronic infection so to help reduce the build-up he has a daily nebuliser as well as physiotherapy twice a day on top of encouraging Finley to do other sporting and energetic activity.

"The support that the CF Trust, NHS, The Royal Brompton hospital, Epsom Hospital and the whole of Finley’s CF team work, with us as a family, very hard to keep Finley well.

"Hopefully through research new medicine will be available for Finley to live a long and happy life."

The golf day is already full but businesses and individuals are welcome to donate raffle prizes.

The family want to thank Chessington Garden Centre, Amandege, The Jolly Coopers, Horton Farm, Bocketts Park Farm, and Rainbow Leisure Centre, who have generously donated prizes.
