Fundraisers are planning to take to the air on Saturday to boost the campaign paying for vital surgery to help Burwell two year old Danny Pickard to hear.

Janine Cater, who grew up in Burwell and used to work with Danny’s mum, Helen, and Helen Epps Webb from Soham, who are pictured above with Danny, will be heading to an airfield near Chatteris, weather permitting, to take part in sponsored sky dive. This summer Danny underwent pioneering surgery in Italy involving an auditory brain stem implant. The surgery and speech therapy Danny now needs cost £65,000 and local fundraising has so far collected around £28,000. Go to Facebook and Jeano’s skydive for help Danny hear.
