Going the distance for the Freddie Farmer Foundation

This weekend Freddie Farmer and his brother Oliver are raising money for the Freddie Farmer Foundation. Freddie has cerebral palsy and he’s hoping to raise £250,000. He explains his event:

On Sunday 11 March my brother Oliver (age 10) and I, Freddie (age 7) are joining the staff at Sainsbury’s Eltham in a 2.8 mile walk to Sainsbury’s in Chislehurst to raise money for the Freddie Farmer Foundation.

The Foundation was founded in 2011 in my name by my family to raise £250,000 to set-up a specialised physiotherapy centre in SE England for children & young people with cerebral palsy (like me) or who have serious mobility problems.

Sainsbury’s in Eltham have adopted us as their ‘charity of the year’ and have held numerous fundraising events supporting our cause. Paralympic gold medal winner Danny Crates will start us off.

“I plan on completing the whole distance (2.8 miles) in my electric wheelchair – a massive challenge for me as I have limited movement in my upper body but I am determined & confident I will make the finishing line.”

Oliver, on the other hand will no doubt try & run the whole distance as fast as he can – he is very fast.
