Ferry Project workers raise money to send 11-year-old with brain tumour to Italy

EMPLOYEES working at the Ferry Project in Wisbech have raised �2,000 to help an 11-year-old with a brain tumour achieve his dreams and visit Italy.

When Chan Abraham, chairman of the Ferry Project, found out that his employee Sue Cole’s nephew, Liam Pridmore, had been diagnosed with the tumour he asked all employees to help Liam realise his dreams.

Staff at Luminus, who run the Wisbech project, held cake sales, raffles and donated money to raise �1,000 which Mr Abraham matched to bring the total of �2,000 to help Liam see the sights in London and own a Nintendo 3DS.

Liam was presented the cheque and a Nintendo game by Mr Abraham at the Luminus conference, where he also acted as group chief executive for 10 minutes by sitting in Mr Abraham’s chair.

Mr Abraham said: “In 2011, our year of Rescuing Dreams and Reviving Aspirations, it is wonderful to see the Luminus family respond with such warmth and enthusiasm to help Liam realise his dreams.

“It is a prime example of our 2020 Vision: The Road to Renewal which is about living for others and not for ourselves. Liam and his family are in our thoughts and prayers and we are standing with them as they progress with his treatment.”
