Sidmouth cancer group helps young Raymond
Sidmouth Living With Cancer members donate �250 to Save A Kid challenge
A SIDMOUTH cancer support group has given �250 towards giving life-saving treatment to 12-year-old cancer boy Raymond O’Sullivan from Withycombe.
Since the Sidmouth Herald’s sister paper, the Exmouth Journal, launched its Give a Quid, Save a Kid challenge, some �10,000 has been raised to pay for the youngster’s trip to America or Holland to fund specialist radiotherapy treatment he badly needs within the next few weeks to keep him alive.
Last week a group from Sidmouth Living With Cancer handed over �250 from their current funds towards Raymond’s trip.
“This is our way of doing something else for other people,” said Bill Lankester from SLWC, who emphasised the money was not from its Campaign 2010 fund.
