ApêlElain is a fundraising appeal raising vital cash for charities involved in the care of Elain James. Originally launched on 1st of January 2011 the initial aim of the appeal was to raise funds for charities that were paramount in supporting Elain James and her family through an incredibly tough first year of life in 2010.
Since its launch ApêlElain has raised over £54,000 for various cardiac and other charities involved in Elain's care throughout South West Wales and beyond.
Many of these charities, along with some new ones, have continued to play a significant role in Elain's ongoing care and treatment throughout 2011 and 2012 and will do so for the foreseeable future.
Due to the overwhelming success of the Appeal and the fact that Elain still continues to battle against her medical condition, her parents Bridget and Gareth decided that after a short break in 2012 they would continue to welcome donations and fundraising efforts in Elain's name.
