Stand Up for Sadie

Next weekend sees the return of one of the most popular annual fun days for the whole family  and I was joined this morning by Martin Hardwick-Smith, President of Brentwood Lions, organisers of the Stock Donkey Derby.

Martin explained that all the profits raised will be going to local charities and people in need of support, with £5,000 raised last year being pledged towards a £60,000 target for a life-changing operation and vital aftercare for 4 year-old Sadie Fisk from Margaretting.

Sadie was born 13 weeks premature and has cerebral palsy, meaning that even with specialist and expensive physiotherapy she’s not expected to be able to walk. That can be made possible, however, with an operation called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy, but as it’s not available on the NHS her family are working hard to raise the money along with support from groups like the Lions.

Sadie’s Mother Kelly popped in with Martin to tell Sadie’s story so far, which began with a VIP style specially chartered flight – but not one Kelly and her husband Mark would have wished for!
