A SWINDON Wildcats game has raised more vital funds to help a young boy smile again.

Oliver Johnson, aged six from Oxford, suffered from a massive seizure in 2016 which left him severely brain damaged.

Family Friend Samuel May, from Swindon, has been fundraising for the last six months to pay for life-changing therapies to help Oliver regain basic motor functions again.

A Swindon Wildcats game earlier this month managed raise a further £260 - and every amount is beginning to have a huge impact of Oliver's recovery.

"He was properly belly-laughing, which I've not heard for a few years. He had a massive smile," said Samuel May.

"He's using his legs a lot now to balance and sit up. He's really getting there. It's absolutely incredible, I can't believe it myself. We're just going to keep going, because he's improving so much

"I just can't thank people enough they've just been really kind."

The team behind the campaign have also done two bag packing sessions at Tesco, raising another £500, and also went to the Matt Fiddes UK championships on November 10.

The celebrity trainer, also from Swindon, has backed the campaign after his own son suffered a seizure.

The campaign has raised more than £4,600 since it began six months ago.

It will have a short hiatus over the Christmas holiday and is planning a more events in the 2019.
