BRIDGWATER NEWS: Tractor fantastic for Freddy
NEARLY 200 tractors descended on the Sedgemoor Auction Centre on the outskirts of Bridgwater on Sunday (September 17, 2017) to help raise funds for four-year-old Freddy Vallender.
Around £100,000 is needed to allow Freddy to go to the United States to receive lifesaving surgery.
His parents Cathryn and Andy have been working really hard to raise the funds needed and they have been overwhelmed by the support they have received.
Freddy, who lives near Bridgwater, has a very rare and life-threatening heart condition and needs some specialist treatment to remove a cardiac tumour from his left ventricle.
But his family are trying to raise the money to take him to Boston Children’s Hospital in Massachusetts for an operation that will change his life forever.
Greenslade Taylor Hunt, which runs Sedgemoor Auction Centre at Junction 24, North Petherton, was delighted to get involved with the fundraising and to sponsor a mass tractor run on Sunday (September 17, 2017) where machines of all shapes and sizes came together.
