A HOUSEBUILDER raised £100 for an appeal to help a sick Worcester boy.

Housebuilder, Bloor Homes held a dress-down day at its regional head office in Tewkesbury and its new housing development, The Grove at Worcester in aid of five-year old, Oscar Saxelby-Lee.

Staff at both sites were invited to come into work in dress-down clothes, in return for a donation towards Oscar’s fundraising appeal. Visitors to The Grove at Worcester were also able to contribute to the fundraising via a collection tin in the sales office.

Oscar, who lives in Worcester with his parents, needs lifesaving Car-T therapy or a further stem cell transplant to treat his T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, both of which are not available on the NHS. The community came together to raise £500,000 to fund his treatment, but Oscar's parents want people to keep fundraising for research so other children with Oscar's cancer can benefit.
