Pupils at the John Colet School in Wendover held a 12-hour frisbee event on 
Friday October 21 as fundraising to help Ollie Gardiner continued.

The Year Eight student awas diagnosed with a brain 
tumour last year.

Despite the fact that his condition is considered incurable, his family are trying to raise money to allow him to have a potentially life-saving operation.

Originally the treatment was estimated to cost £100,000 but last week his parents found out the programme would cost £440,000.

Other events in the past week included a fundraiser jointly organised by Bedgrove Dynamos and Aston Clinton Colts and bag-packing at Tesco Tring Road by Aston Clinton’s Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers.

At the time of going to press £126,041 had been raised.
