Fans Walk To Wembley For Oskar

A group of sports fans have embarked on a 120-mile walk from Ashton Gate to Wembley to raise vital funds for Oskar Pycroft.

With the clock counting down to City’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final on Sunday, Scott Wright and ten volunteers have come together to help raise the final funds for Oskar Pycroft’s life-changing operation.

Leaving Ashton Gate this morning, the volunteers face a mammoth 120-mile trek to Wembley.

Organiser, Scott Wright, said: “We’re hoping to smash the £50,000 mark once we get there and hopefully City will bring home the trophy as well and with Oskar being the mascot it would be the perfect day”

Oskar has captured the hearts of the Bristol Sporting community. The six year-old suffers from severe cerebral palsy and raising the money for this operation will be his best chance at walking and reducing some of the pain that he constantly suffers.

It’s a challenge which has united both the blue and the red sides of the city.

One of the volunteers, Geoff Wager, a Bristol Rovers fan commented: “Both clubs have come together for this – the City guys are a good bunch so the walk should be good fun”.

With five days to walk the 120-mile distance and the promise of Oskar waiting at the end of it the team hope the public will dig deep and really make it a day to remember.

Fans can still donate. Text OZZI70 and the chosen amount to 70070 (eg OZZI70 £5 to 70070). Better still donate online at justgiving.com/Oskar-70 and gain an extra 25 per cent on each donation through Gift Aid.
