Paramedic Jamie Gray from Waveney station faced every parent’s nightmare when son Ollie was diagnosed with Leukaemia.

Little Ollie, who also had Down’s syndrome, fought against the odds and battled for five years before he passed away in September 2015.

The whole family was deeply affected by what happened to Ollie and wanted to do their bit for other families facing the same situation.

Ollie’s family said; “We would like to help with costs of living in hospital, travelling to and from, parking and so on. Just to provide some relief and entertainment to the families and also to help bereaved children who have lost brothers or sisters to this awful disease. We cannot express our sadness and emptiness after losing Ollie, but we’re hoping we can do just a little to help families and maybe bring a little light to their fight.”

And so Ollie’s Heroes was born.
