Cousins in a fundraising thank you run for Stratford’s Freddie
Two cousins will be running 5k to raise funds for a hospital where a toddler was cared for after major surgery.
Nicola Myring, 24, from Skiers Street, Stratford, and her cousin Sherice Sorhaindo, from Custom House, are hoping to raise �500 for LionWard at Kings College Hospital in central London as a way of saying thanks to the staff who cared for Freddie Lawrence, now six, after he underwent surgery to remove a brain tumour.
Freddie, who lives in Pacific Road, Canning Town, with parents Toni Clifford and Andrew Lawrence, is severely disabled and attends Sir John Heron School in Manor Park. He is the middle son of their friend Toni.
The girls have set up a justgiving web page and raised �140 in just three days. They plan to run 5k at Greenwich Park on December 4 and are hoping people will help them raise vital funds. they will be joined by Sabine Smyth from Greenwich.
Nicola told the Recorder : “Despite Freddie’s disabilities he is a very happy little boy and such a character and we just want to say thank you to the staff for saving his life.”
