Thousands raised for Tofs by 6-year-old Jack Johnson who was born unable to swallow
A six-year-old boy who underwent life saving operations as a baby raised thousands of pounds for charity.
Jack Johnson was born prematurely with a pre-diagnosed condition called Oesophageal Atresia. This meant that his mouth and stomach were not joined and he was unable to swallow.
He took part in a triathlon for youngsters called Scootathon at Eaton Dorney on Sunday, September 16, raising nearly £2,000 for Tofs which supports families of children born unable to swallow.
On Friday, September 21, Jack took hold of the microphone at Granfers Community centre in Sutton to thank the social club for all their sponsorship.
The community centre his great aunt Gladys attends, has helped him raise the funds.
His dad, David Johnson, 42, said: "They gave him a cheque and he said thank you.
"He also met a 99 year old lady and they said hello to each other which was really sweet."
