Event at Sandwich Technology College for Xavier Johnson by grandparents Paul and Helen of Ripple

By Sam Lennon

A fundraising event takes place to raise money for a two-year-old boy with brain damage.

Xavier Johnson lost oxygen during his birth and ended up with bleeds on the brain.

He has now been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, developmental delay epilepsy and feeding problems.

The event is at Sandwich Technology School in Deal Road from 11am to 1pm on Sunday May 20.

It has a skincare stall, with profits from sold products going to the cause.

There will also be a raffle, craft stall and refreshments.

Xavier will have stem cell treatment in America this year and the date for that is to be confirmed.

This has been paid for through fundraising efforts but money is still needed for his aftercare.

This is for treatment such as speech therapy and physiotherapy.

The special day, called Therapy for Xavi, is organised by his grandparents Helen and Paul Johnson of Ripple.

Xavier lives with his parents Mark and Sian Johnson in the village of Papworth Everard in Cambridgeshire.
