Quedgeley toddler Archie Thornhill receives massive donation from Severn swimmer Kev Brady

1 post in this topic

Charity champion Kev Brady has given little Archie Thornhill an incredible early Christmas present – £18,000 towards a life-changing operation.

Kev raised the total – all of which he has donated to four-year-old Archie's cause – by swimming the entire 220 mile length of the River Severn in October.

Money is being raised to pay for an operation in the United States for the Quedgeley toddler, who suffers from Cerebral Palsy, which would free him from pain and enable him to move independently.

And the sum donated by Kev takes the total raised so far to around £40,000, meaning Archie's mum Charlotte has been able to ask for an operation date next September.

Charlotte said: "It's ridiculous what Kev's done.

"When he was raising the money we weren't aware that it was going to Archie, and he came round last week and told us that's where he wanted it to go, and it's just mindblowing, really – it's unbelievable.

"It just means the world to me, coming up to Christmas especially.

"I've been a bit stressed out with making sure we can raise as much as we can before the end of the year and Kev's literally blown that out of the water."
