Big Push event will help raise money for teenager’s op

A fundraising event is taking place in Finedon this Saturday, Sunday and Monday to help raise money to send a teenager from the village to the US for an operation which will help improve the quality of his life.

People are being invited to take part in the Wheely Big Push by taking prams, shopping trolleys, wheelbarrows and any other wheeled items to Finedon Green for a sponsored event.

Ben Talbot’s family is aiming to raise £30,000 to take him to St Louis Children’s Hospital for a pioneering operation on his legs. For more details visit
