A fundraising event in aid of Cystic Fibrosis will take place this Saturday (10th July) starting at 11.am outside the Bridlington Lifeboat station near to the Spa.
Walkers are asked to meet outside on the on promenade area before trekking to South Shore and back.
The event is to raise funds for the charity after they helped local youngster Logan Robinson.
Logan’s grandmother Trish Robinson explained: “Most charities have suffered due to lock down and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust is very dear to our hearts as my precious grandson Logan Robinson was diagnosed last year at only 3 weeks old.”
“We were all deeply shocked as no members of our families had ever shown the CF gene in them.
“I myself had heard of the condition but didn’t really know much about it but since then have looked into the research and how it affects sufferers.
“Both parents have to carry the defective gene and then 1 in 4 babies will be born with actual Cystic Fibrosis.”
Since he was diagnosed , Logan has his own teams of Doctors and Specialists at Castle Hill and Hull Royal where he regularly attends for appointments.
“We are asking for sponsor money donations and if anyone wants to join us – observing the social distancing rules – that would be great. If they too could get sponsors that would be even better as we would add it all together.” added Trish.
“I’m also selling yellow and purple decorative stars at £3.50 each (yellow represents the trust, purple is the colour of the CF awareness day) and the star is because each CF sufferer is a star.”
Logan will hopefully be on the walk but kept at a very safe distance from everyone.
“We are holding a raffle so if anyone has any small prizes they could donate that would be fantastic and we are expecting some CF collection boxes too. CF is not curable but the trust keep working hard on trying to update different medicines so that a lot of sufferers can live a longer life, however they go through so much and Logan is only just 1 yr old and already has been so brave and has been and going through a lot.”
