Why not Join our Toms Toddle Campaign.

Tom Jenkinson , from Chichester, aged 5, has just one wish in the New Year – to raise enough money for an operation to help him walk. Together with Tom Jenkinson’s family, we are desperately trying to help them raise the £40,000 needed to pay for selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery in America before next summer. They hope the surgery will allow Thomas who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, to move around more independently. Because his cerebral palsy crosses both sides of his body, he will probably need to use sticks to walk even after his operation. However, his family has a simple aim—for him to be able to use the toilet and move himself without help. We are working with Toms family and local people and businesses to help raise money for Tom, and already have a number of businesses wanting to get involved in donating prizes for a Silent Auction that we will holding in the New Year.


We are asking businesses that want to get involved in helping Tom on his way to contact Vicki Harrison at The Tall Dog on 01730 858178 / 07576 112199 or Email Vicki Harrison for more information or to get in touch with the family direct Email Toms Family or tweet @ helptomtoddle.

To donate to the Toms Toddle Fund and join the team, alternatively text TOMS98 to 70070, donating anything from £1 to £1000, or drop a cheque into The Tall Dog made payable to Thomas Jenkinson
