Friendship bracelets help Corey towards his dream
A kind-hearted family from Swindon, Wilts has been busy making and selling friendship bracelets to raise funds to help Corey Cummings walk again.
Kevin Cox, Tarmac’s technician at Eysey Manor quarry near Cricklade, his wife and step-daughter made over 300 bracelets which his two children, Thomas & Jacob, sold at school. Kevin said: “We made and sold the bracelets to raise money for Corey, who goes to school with my two sons. He has Cerebral Palsy and is unable to walk. His family are trying to raise £24,000 for an operation in Bristol or a staggering £50,00 for an operation in America that will allow him to walk again and to do all the normal things a six year old boy does.
“I applied for the match fund at Tarmac where I work and was delighted when they agreed, increasing the amount donated to the Corey Cummings Fund to £380.”
Kelly Cummings, Corey’s mum added: "We are extremely humbled and thankful to Kevin, his lovely family and Tarmac for their donation. We have so far raised £13,363 in 13 weeks; this is an amazing amount that would not have been possible without the kindness and generosity of others."
