Supporting Jamie’s SDR Journey

Every year, the staff at Hillyer McKeown (HM) vote to support a charity.

This year HM is proud to be supporting Jamie’s SDR Journey.

Throughout the year, HM will be focusing its fundraising efforts on this chosen charity, encouraging colleagues in the Chester, Liverpool and Wirral offices to get involved in activities such as dress down days, themed cake bakes, and seasonal events.

Jamie is a four year old from Liverpool who has muscle tightness in his legs which means he cannot stand or walk unaided. The target to raise £60K is for life changing Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) operation, followed by at least two years of physiotherapy which would improve Jamie’s quality of life.

Visit Jamie’s SDR Journey Just Giving page to read his full story. For the latest updates follow Jamie on Facebook and on Twitter.

HM was delighted to meet Jamie and his family (including little sister Grace) and discover that this incredibly brave boy likes Pombears, colouring in and Thomas the Tank Engine.
