Bristol Mitsubishi to hold fundraiser for young boy with cerebral palsy

Bristol Mitsubishi is set to hold a fundraiser to help fund surgery for a young boy with cerebral palsy.

Six-year-old Oskar Pycroft, from Whitworth, Somerset, cannot sit, stand or walk independently.

The surgery, which is his only chance of being able to walk, is not available on the NHS so his family are trying to raise £70,000 to fund treatment at Saint Louis Children’s Hospital in America.

The fundraiser will take place at the dealership on Feeder Road, Avon, this Friday, where there will be a cake sale, a raffle with prizes including a hamper and staff will pay to wear fancy dress.

Bristol Mitsubishi general manager Chris Green said: “Oskar is a local lad and we want to do all we can to help as it’s a cause that is close to everyone’s heart. I’ve spoken to his mum and Oskar is in constant pain but this operation will improve his quality of life.

“The people of Bristol have already given generously but the family still need to raise more money so we hope people will come down on Friday and give their support.”

Staff at the dealership in Feeder Road, Avon, heard about Oskar after Bristol City backed the campaign, which has already passed the £30,000 mark.
