Weʼve raised £345 to Jack Thompson, who's partially blind and has a brain tumour he needs chemo, so he's going to be traveling to London on a regular basis.

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Jack is 8 years old, he is partially blind. He loves to get out and meet people. He'll talk to anyone he can and he thinks he's lucky to be able to chat and meet new people.
Jack is one of the most amazing children I've ever met. He doesn't let anything stop him. He loves to go Trampolining and competes for Apollo trampoline club, he has just won gold in the NDP's competition . Jack also has swimming lessons and tries to do the same as every other child his age.
Jack isn't an average 8year old, as he works in Sainsbury's (Washington) at least once a week, where he helps out at customer services, pick the clothes up off the floor, put the clothes back from the changing rooms, meets and greets the customers as the come and go, he was even helping sell mobile phones. Jack has amazingly raised well over £4,000 for other charities.
Unfortunately, Jack and his family have recently found out he has a brain tumour
and needs to start chemotherapy. He will have to travel to London on a regular basis, as the chemotherapy drug is a trail.
Apollo trampoline club are doing a sponsored bounce to help raise money for him. They are going to do 30 consecutive moves, which is 3 routines straight after each other.
They are also having a raffle, tombola and a cake stall on 4th December, 1-4pm at Washington Leisure centre if you would like to come along.
I understand this is an awful time of year, so even if you can only donate £1 it would be a huge help towards their travel to London or even give Jack a little treat.
