A company has helped a fund started to pay for life-changing surgery for a Snailwell youngster reach its halfway target of £35,000.
Tristel, a global leader in infection control products, based in two-year-old Seb Brokenshire-Dyke’s home village, donated £7,500 to the Seb’s Legs appeal and have pledged to try and double that with further continued fundraising throughout the year.
Seb’s parents, Lorna and James embarked on the fundraising campaign in October last year and together with their family and friends, and lots of local support including Tristel, are now over halfway towards their fundraising target of £70,000. Seb has Cerebral Palsy spastic diplegia which means he cannot stand or walk independently. His family are fundraising through the charity Tree of Hope to send him to St Louis Children’s Hospital in America to have radical surgery to help him walk and move more independently. “Everyone at Tristel felt strongly that they wanted to support Seb because we are quite literally their neighbours, living just down the road,” said Lorna.
