The Thumbraisers give help and hope to children & their families who have brain tumours and post-surgery disabilities. The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity relies on the support of the public to enable them to provide the help and services offered. To date, they have raised over £510,000 and have helped over 1,500 families, thanks to the wonderful supporters and the generous help of the public.
Dawn, Josh’s Mum and the co-founder of Superjosh’s Charity said “We are so proud to have been chosen by Bury FC. We are Bury born and bred, Josh loved being the mascot on the pitch and meeting the players. It will be amazing awareness for his charity as well as bringing new relationships and opportunities for fundraising to help us help more families in his legacy. Thank you to everyone at the club for all their support!”
Vicky Whitehead, Commercial Executive at Bury Football Club said “From our first meeting I have been in awe of Dawn and the work she does for Josh’s Charity. I wanted to help and I wanted the club and our sponsors to help, we have sat down and thrown lots of ideas around of how we can work together and I’m confident that it’s going to be a fantastic relationship and one I’m excited to be a part of”.
We will be joining Dawn and all the Thumbraisers this Saturday. They are taking part in the Pride Parade in Manchester if you see them passing give them a wave or a thumb’s up.
