Nearly Half Way

December 31, 2014


Can we help? YES WE CAN. £50,000 is needed and the halfway way point has nearly been reached.

This is the big fund-raising event for Oskar Pycroft. Our recent quiz night raised about £350 but the Torquay match has the potential to raise much more.


Look out for the Pink and Orange Buckets and collection tins at the match tomorrow.

They say every little helps. In this case can you spare a Big rather than a little.


Oskar is 6 years old and has cerebral palsy. There is a surgery called Selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) which can help improve the quality of his life and is his only chance of being able to walk. Six year-old Oskar Pycroft from Whitchurch is unable to sit, stand or walk independently. He is in constant pain with his muscles and joints.

The NHS have brought to Bristol an expert in this medical operation but it has been deemed that Oskar does not meet the strict NHS criteria! However, he is now able to get this operation done privately in the UK. The only stumbling block is the cost of £50,000. Family and friends are doing numerous events to aid in the fundraising.

The Torquay United Home match is the chance for Bristol Rovers supporters to do their bit.

If you are willing to help with the bucket collection please email Brian Seymour-Smith at [email protected]

Look out for the PINK and ORANGE buckets and tins.
