Fundraisers walk Thames Path for 17-month-old Jago

Charity walkers were exhausted and elated after finishing the Thames Path challenge for a little boy with severe brain damage.

Eddie Robinson, Fiona Poots and Helen Snowden walked overnight on Saturday from Putney to Henley and have so far raised £7,000 for the Jago Worrall Foundation.

Six months ago Jago 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.

The fundraising will help Jago's parents pay for his care and therapy at a specialist unit in Surrey.

"We started as a team and finished as a team," said Eddie, owner of Robinson Estate Agents in Maidenhead.

"We survived and have the blisters to prove it!"
