Sussex Police has donated £400 to the charity Tree of Hope after officers were contacted by Jean-Marc Poinsignon, who is raising money for his son, Oliver, to undergo Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) surgery.
I am taking part in the Wentwood50 Goshawk Challenge. It is a 50km mountain bike event and I am hoping to raise some money for Tree of Hope to help a young lad called Brandon who has Celebral Palsy.
The campaign to help five-year-old cerebral palsy sufferer Oliver Dickey from Coleraine walk and play like his classmates has received the backing of sporting and TV stars.
He’s the little boy with a big wish that most people take for granted – to be able to walk.
I am just an average busy mummy who adores her children. In our family journey we were lucky to meet the Lawrence family. Brooke, their second eldest daughter has spastic cerebral palsy.
Since 2009 more than 100 British children have been treated for SDR at St Louis Children’s Hospital, Missouri.
