This year we are bringing back the original Peninsula Walk. A walk that we, back in the early days at Peninsula Care took part in to raise money for some of the charitable organisations we support and those other local causes in need.
This year we are using this walk to show our continued support for little Cavan O’Neil whom is unable to ever take his first steps without life changing surgery in the US. This surgery comes at the cost of ¬£80k to which his parents have been tirelessly working to raise, so we are hoping in bringing back our walk we can help them get closer to their target.
Our Director, Jonny Cook commented “Cavan really does need our help. He is such a happy child and like any child his age is wanting to explore the world around him. Its terrible to see him being limited in how he can do this and that he suffers pain in his legs when trying to do so. I know that the Peninsula Care team will get behind us to help, our team always go that extra mile for those in need as caring is everything to us.”
