Big sister Holly takes on epic swim challenge!

07.11.17 Categories: Supporter stories,

Thirteen-year-old Holly Richardson raised an amazing £2417 for Evelina London to thank them for the care and support they have given to her little brother, Sam.  

Sam has been treated for heart disease at the hospital since he was 17 days old and he continues to visit the hospital regularly for MRI scans and other tests. 

Holly wanted to help other children who suffer from the same condition as Sam, and decided to take on a couple of physical challenges: a three-mile swim and a 12-hour ‘squashathon’! 

Holly trained hard, with lots of help and support from the Richardson family, and she completed both challenges in September. As if that wasn’t enough, she also held bake sales to help her reach a fundraising target of £500 – and smashed it!
