Staff at a popular Cheshire Oaks attraction are preparing to hit their peak performance in aid of a good cause tomorrow (Thursday).

The employees at Vue Cinema, Cheshire Oaks, are holding a fundraiser on September 11 on behalf of one of the son of one of their staff members.

A total of 20 members of staff will attempt to scale Snowdon in aid of the Diamond Blackfan Anaemia Charity (DBA UK).

Helen Till, who works at the Vue, and her family have made the news both locally and nationally recently with their amazing story.

Her son Drew suffers from diamond blackfan anaemia, a rare genetic bone marrow failure. The only cure for this life-threatening disease is a bone marrow transplant, ideally from a sibling – and as luck would have it, Drew’s 10-year-old sister Lexie is a perfect match.

Donna Collings from Vue cinema said: “Everyone here is very fond of the Tills. Drew and Lexie used to visit often and really are the happiest children, you almost forget Drew is so poorly.

“We wanted to show our support so planned a fundraiser.

“For most of us it will most definitely be a challenge. We’ve never done anything like this before!”

Helen, along with her husband Andy, is an active member of the DBA UK, which provides support to other families dealing with the disease.
