A family who have just weeks left to raise £35,000 to pay for their son’s life changing operation are doing a sponsored wheelchair push this weekend.

On Sunday Malcolm Hall and Clare Garner will walk five miles from Anchorage Lane Park, Sprotborough to the Boat Inn and back whilst pushing their seven-year-old son Cameron.

Cameron was born with Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy leaving him unable to walk. The family are desperately trying to raise the money so that Cameron can have a procedure at Leeds General Infirmary at the end of the month.

Cameron’s Dad, Malcolm, said: “We are desperate to raise the money Cameron needs by the end of October so that he can undergo this potentially life changing procedure. The money raised will not only pay for the operation but will also enable us to provide vital equipment and physiotherapy for Cameron.

“We desperately need to raise this money as we want nothing more than to be able to see Cameron running around the playground with his friends. People have been very generous so far but we do need more help to reach our target and make our little boys dream come true.” To support the ‘Get Cameron Walking’ appeal contact Caudwell Children on 01782 600867, donate online at
