Premier Communication Electronics (PCE) has given its support to a charity event held in Exmouth to raise money for the Ryan Edwards Appeal.
Ryan, from Exeter, has been fighting a form of aggressive childhood cancer since he was two. Ryan needs immediate treatment to try to shrink a new tumour on his spine. Ryan’s best chance of beating the disease is to travel to Germany for a stem cell transplant but this will cost in excess of £300,000.
Exmouth hosted two fun days during the wet bank holiday weekend which included a table sale, live music, a Martial arts demonstration, BBQ and visits from Mickey Mouse and In The Night Garden’s Iggle Piggle.
PCE, based in Osprey Road on Exeter’s Sowton Industrial Estate, loaned the event six two-way radios to enable the events co-ordinators to remain in contact throughout the weekend.
Karen Langley, managing director of PCE, said: “Everyone in Exeter has been touched by Ryan Edwards’ story and it was our pleasure to contribute to this charity event in some way.”
Event organiser Marion Baker said: “We had a fab day and we raised £1,400 with special thanks to PCE for the loan of the radios.
“It was fantastic to have the radios for the event. We used them as we walked around all the shops to let others know where we were.”
