The Pendragon pub in Thornhill, Cardiff, has pledged more than £750 to help make a Christmas wish come true for three year old Evan Hansen.
Evan was diagnosed at 18 months with Cerebral Palsy, meaning he is unable to walk unaided. His parents, Paula and Steve, have been given the chance of potentially life-changing treatment in America, but at a cost of £40,000. So far they have managed to raise £30,000. With only a few weeks left to find the remaining funds the £750 donation takes them closer to their goal.
Each year, a charity fundraising committee at the Pendragon chooses to lend its support to a range of worthy causes, donating all money raised at quiz nights, charity events and Since 2003 the pub has handed over more that £50,000 to charities including Velindre Cancer Centre, Noah’s Ark Appeal and help for Heroes.
Managers of the Pendragon Lyndon and Jayne Edwards said: "Thanks really must go to our customers who always give generously. They have helped make a difference to so many local charities – Evan being the latest to benefit."
