A mum trekking across Iceland in aid of the charity which supports her haemophiliac sons is hosting a fundraising family fun day this weekend.

Emma Hart’s latest event in aid of the Haemophilia Society takes place at the Tudor Rose pub in Chaulden on Saturday from 2pm. It will feature stalls, games, a barbecue, face painting and even a visit from the fire service.

The money raised will act as sponsorship for Emma’s Icelandic challenge, which takes place in July.

She is now being joined on the trek by cousin Mandi Walshe, and wants to raise awareness of the rare blood disorder affecting her little boys Samuel, eight, and Oliver, five.

Emma, who has run several family events and men’s waxing fundraisers at the Tudor Rose, said: “The landlord and landlady, Mary and Ade, have been so supportive and without them I would never have been able to raise as much as I have.

To date they have helped Mandi and I raise more than £3,500 which is beyond what I ever expected to raise.”
