Walking to raise money for 17-month-old with brain damage

Fundraisers will walk the Thames Path from Putney to Henley this weekend to raise money for a little boy who has severe brain damage.

Eddie Robinson, Fiona Poots and Helen Snowden say have been amazed by people's generosity.

Six months ago Jago Worrall was playing with friends at the bottom of his garden and fell into the duck pond.

The 17-month-old was found and paramedics managed to save his life, but he was left with severe brain damage.

Eddie, Fiona, and Helen are friends with Jago's parents who used to live in the Maidenhead area.

They hope to raise £4,000 for Jago's therapy and care at a specialist unit in Surrey.

"We have been amazed by people's generosity and that will help spur us on," said Eddie, owner of Robinson Estate Agents in Maidenhead.
