Sodor Island Forums and Fansite are proud to honour the memory of Matthew Dawson - a member of our boards who passed away in August 2011 - with a charity auction to raise money for the Clic Sargent Children's Cancer Charity, in order to help more children battling with cancer and their families.

Matt suffered from the most aggressive form of Rhabdomyosarcoma – a cancer that affects the soft tissues and only affects about 50 children in the UK per year. However, despite this grueling challenge, he remained courageous and maintained a positive outlook and won a great deal of support on SiF throughout his time with us.

Up for grabs is a very special package containing: 

A copy of Railway Series 42, Thomas And His Friends, signed by Christopher Awdry

A copy of the Rev. W. Awdry’s biography – The Thomas The Tank Engine Man - written by Brian Sibley

A copy of Sodor: Reading Between The Lines.

This is a very special auction, the proceeds from which, will go to help a lot of children suffering with cancer within the UK.  Do not be discouraged from bidding if you live outside of the UK, as we will gladly ship the books worldwide.

We would also like to encourage as many individual donations that people are willing to give outwith the auction as possible. This will contribute to our overall total, and everyone who donates will receive a place on our Roll of Honour. Even if it’s only 1 or $1, it’s a contribution that will count toward the final total and help Clic Sargent fund their incredible work.

Matthew was a terrific lad on our forum, a very eloquently spoken and brave man. He had a three year battle with cancer, and was one of the bravest people we will know.  Always posting with humour, never in anger, he was an amazing young man who was always battling, to the very end. He will be greatly missed by the members of the forum

Simon Martin - August 17th, 2011
