Police Cell Lock in for SuperJosh!
Police Cell Lock in for SuperJosh!
Josh Wilson 14, aka SuperJosh has been living with a brain tumour for 10 years and now has a terminal chronic lung condition following live saving surgery to remove his tumour when he was just 3 and a half.
This Sunday Keith Fraser, Superintendent of West Midlands Police will be locked up overnight for 9 hours in the cells with 15 others including Dawn Fidler Mum to 14 year old SuperJosh, Flash the Cash 4 times World Kickboxing Champion, Dance Music Artist MC MAGIKA, Boxing Champ Wayne Elcock and Tracey Patterson.
The Lockin4Josh team are raising money & awareness for The Joshua Wilson ‘SuperJosh’ Brain Tumour Charity which was founded by Dawn Joshs Mum to help Josh help other families last year.
The team are getting locked up this Sunday 5th October 2014 10pm til 7am at Walsall Police.
Charity Chairman Keith Fraser says ‘The support that we have received from the public has been amazing. I am thankful to those giving up their time to be locked up. This experience replicates some of the life time restrictions others face as a result of brain tumours. Show your support and sponsor us, every pound helps http://www.gofundme.com/e70uaw Thank you’
Thank you to West Midlands Police for their support and permission

Helping Josh give help and hope to children & their families who have brain tumours, post surgery disabilities & along Josh’s Journey.
We help children who have or have had a brain tumour & their families with advice, support & financial solutions, with special focus on those who also have post surgery disabilities.
We also help organisations and places along Josh’s Journey, hospitals, care centres, special schools & brain tumour awareness groups.
How can we help?
Here are some of the ways we help families across England & Wales.
We give families grants for hospital expenses & travel – a 2 week stay can cost over £200 in meals, parking, petrol etc.
We can provide specialist equipment & house adaptation like a ceiling track hoist & through floor lifts that helps with moving & handling for big heavy lumps like Teenager Josh – they cost between £4k – £10k each.
We help with special treats, like holidays after Chemo, to give families holistic respite and time together again to be normal, so important after such stressful times.
We help hospitals by donating teenage entertainment packages, full of Xbox’s, TVs & iPads.
Things that you presume are provided by the NHS but are sadly not – we find out these gaps during our hospital stays, it’s heartbreaking to see Children’s wards with broken TVs, when it’s so simple to put a smile on their faces.
We can help with mortgage payments for families where one parent has to give up work due to their Child’s brain tumour treatment – this is real direct help & as you can imagine dramatically reduces unneeded stress.
Sadly we help with funeral expenses also, to give families the help they need to say a beautiful goodbye to their little one.
To be able to give direct help to families & to see the difference we make directly as one is just incredible.
We are a new charity but the speed in which we are growing is just amazing, since our launch we’ve raised over
£1000,000 through public fundraising alone.
Your support means a phenomenal amount to us and it would help us build our foundations for growth to help 100′s more children families at the time that they need us more than ever.
Your help will increase the number of families that we can help who have children like Josh with brain tumours & disabilities, making a direct impact & difference to so many lives.
