DACRES RAISES MORE THAN £800 FOR ILKLEY BOY

Residential News | Thu 12 Jul 2018
More News

Together with our clients we have raised £825 to help pay for a life-changing operation that will enable a four-year-old Ilkley boy called Gabriel to walk, jump and run, and the appeal is now just £300 away from its £40,000 target.
We made a donation to the ‘Go Gabriel Go’ campaign for every new property that our Burley in Wharfedale office put up for sale over an eight-week period.  In addition, several other local organisations have supported the campaign including Salem United Reformed Church which hosted its second Party in the Park on 17th June 2018. 
Gabriel was born 10 weeks early along with his triplet brothers, Louis and Max.  After his birth, Gabriel faced a particularly tough fight which left him with autism and spastic diplegia cerebral palsy.  The cerebral palsy is painful and causes his leg muscles to stiffen, which means he can’t put his feet flat on the ground and can only walk very short distances on tip-toes.
He has now been selected for an operation, known as Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR), at Leeds General Infirmary.  Surgeons plan to cut 70% of the nerves in Gabriel’s spinal cord, which will ease the stiffness in his legs and it’s hoped that with physiotherapy he should then be able to run and jump.  Although the NHS performs SDR treatment, the organisation doesn’t currently fund it.
Paul Wilson, Wharfedale Area Director, said: “We committed to donating £75 for every new property that we listed in Burley in Wharfedale and we’re delighted to have been able to push the ‘Go Gabriel Go’ campaign to within touching distance of its overall target. 
“Gabriel has obviously had a tough start in life and this operation could make a huge difference to both him and his family.  As a Wharfedale based business, that’s firmly entrenched within the local community, we wish them all the best with everything, and look forward to seeing Gabriel’s progress moving forward.”
