Funding boost for Pinchbeck teenager with cerebral palsy
A fundraising appeal to help a Pinchbeck teenager's hopes of walking without pain have been boosted by Spalding Lions.
Kieran Evans (16) and his mother Melissa are trying to raise £13,000 towards spinal surgery for him at Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, which would lessen the effects of cerebral palsy which the teenager was diagnosed with at the age of two.
Spalding Lions arranged a 'Kieran Evans Collection Day' back in December at Morrison’s Supermarket at Pinchbeck but due to unforeseen circumstances, Kieran has only just been able to receive the cheque, for a smashing £1,500. Mum Melissa came along too.
Some £3,260 has so far been raised but now the total needed now is just £6,500 after Spalding and District Round Table offered to match fund the rest.
