Major Fundraising Drive For A Center Parcs Family Holiday For Warminster Youngster Finn Martin Who Has Leukaemia

Friday 6th May 2016:

The mother of a four-year-old with leukaemia has spoken of her shock after she discovered friends and family had organised a huge fundraising campaign to support her – without her even knowing.

Debbie Martin, from Warminster, has spent much of the past seven months at Southampton Hospital with her son Finn, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia back in October.

And with little Finn facing three years of treatment, restrictions on what he can and can't do and the need to be close to a hospital, there was little chance of the family ever getting away on holiday. 

But Debbie's daughter Eli Hodson, 24, secretly arranged a major fundraising drive to pay for a week's break at Center Parcs in Longleat Forest – just a couple of miles from their home in Warminster.

Full report from Western Daily Press: http://www.westerndailypress.co.uk/…/story-2923…/story.html…

Debbie's blog is on Facebook at 'Finntastic Fight'

and the Just Giving page for Finn's holiday is still accepting donations:
