Wiltshire runner raises more than £1300 in the London marathon for a charity which granted his ill son a wishWritten by Justin Jeffrey
A Wiltshire man has raised more than £1300 for a charity which granted a wish for his son who was diagnosed with cancer in 2020, by running the London Marathon.
Neville chose to raise money for Molly Olly’s Wishes after his son, George – who was 4 years old at the time – was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in March 2020. Molly Olly’s arranged for George to receive a full-sized drum kit which he makes good use of.
Molly Olly’s Wishes was established in 2011 following Molly’s death from a rare kidney cancer.The Midlands-based charity supports children with terminal or life-limiting illnesses and their families. It grants wishes, helps with emotional support and it donates therapeutic toys a nd books to children directly and through hospitals across the UK.
Dad-of-three, Neville ran the marathon in 4 and a half hours; “I have run several marathons over the years for charity. Molly Olly’s is special to us because the team there granted a lovely wish for George which made him happy when everything was so terrifying for us. The charity is so important for children who are facing frightening times.”
Founder of the carity, Rachel Ollerenshaw commented; “We try to bring light to people’s lives when everything seems dark and scary. The average wish costs about £500 so Neville has helped to pay for at least two wishes which will make some poorly children very happy. We are extremely grateful to Neville for raising funds for us.”
