Exmouth mum to raise cash for Raymond’s appeal

An Exmouth mum touched by the plight of cancer boy Raymond O’Sullivan is organising a sponsored walk to raise funds for his lifesaving treatment. Vicky Pool hopes the town will turn out in force to support her efforts.

A Littleham mum-of-three touched by Raymond’s plight has organised a sponsored walk to help boost the youngster’s fundraising efforts to pay for radiotherapy.

Childminder Vicky Pool, 28, of Berry Close, with scores of local mums and their children from the Beacon Primary School and the Tree House Pre-School, will on October 25, walk from Orcombe point to Exmouth docks to raise funds for Raymond’s appeal.

Vicky, who is pregnant with her fourth child, is inviting people to take part in the walk in a bid to raise as much cash as possible for brave Raymond, 12, who is suffering from orbital rhabdomyosarcoma.

Vicky said: “I saw it in the paper and thought to myself if that was my child I would want someone to help me.

“I think it’s really good for the community to show that we all do care. I hope this walk will encourage other people to do something to raise funds.”

l The mums’ and children’s sponsored walk leaves Orcombe Point at 11am. The Beach pub, has offered its Beachcomber facilities for free.
