Sheldon Bosley Knight staff ran, walked and cycled to help pay for a holiday of a lifetime for a young boy being treated for cancer.
Nine-year-old Josh Asbury was diagnosed with T-lymphoblastic leukaemia/lymphoma in November last year only a few weeks after recovering from Covid.
So far the brave youngster from Evesham has had CT scans, surgery on a collapsed lung, numerous biopsies, X-rays, blood tests and ultrasounds and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Starting at the Sheldon Bosley Knight Kenilworth office on Friday, April 1, staff ran to the Leamington branch before handing over the baton to the next group who cycled to Stratford. There was then a walk to the Kineton office before the next leg which was a run to Shipston.
From Shipston the team cycled the seven miles to Chipping Campden before handing over to the next one who walked through the night to get to Winchcombe. The penultimate leg saw a cycle ride to Pershore in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The final team walked from Pershore to the firm’s Evesham office where they had a well-earned cup of tea.
Organiser Christian Cloke said: “I am so proud of all the staff who turned up to help us raise money for Josh and his family. The total so far is just over £2,800 which is fantastic and money is still coming in.
“We are keeping everything crossed for Josh – he and his family are so brave and we hope it’s not too long before they are able to go on a much-needed holiday.
“The local community has also been so supportive of the family, with lots of other fundraising initiatives taking place. It’s been great to see the whole community pulling together.”
