Last week we featured Tony Hudgell, who despite being a double amputee and only five years old, was walking 10km on his new legs to raise funds for the hospital that treated him. To see that feature click here. Tony is now over half way on his sponsored walk and his total is inching ever closer to the half a million pounds for the Evelina Children’s hospital. Tony’s original target was £500 and like his inspiration, Captain Tom, his challenge has been taken up by the nation and the money raised has grown beyond his wildest dreams.
To celebrate the half way milestone Tony was given a huge cake. There is definitely no better way to celebrate and give him energy for the remaining distance than with a big slab of cake. We will be keeping an eye on how the remainder of the walk goes and this is definitely a story that has grown and will in its own way be inspiring others in the same way that Tony was inspired by Captain Tom.
