Ab­seil to raise cash for boy’s surgery

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

A YORK­SHIRE let­ting agent has scaled new heights in his at­tempt to help a nine-year-old boy with cere­bral palsy walk in­de­pen­dently for the first time.

Jon Gra­ham, who works for res­i­den­tial let­ting spe­cial­ists Lin­ley & Simp­son, took part in a chal­lenge on Ilk­ley Moor b’aht ‘at – but with a safety hel­met as he ab­seiled down the Cow and Calf rocks.

Thirty-year-old Jon, man­ager of Lin­ley & Simp­son’s branch in Brook Street, joined other agents from across Ilk­ley in rais­ing money to help send Ben Smith­son to Amer­ica for life-chang­ing surgery.

Jon, who lives at Bram­ley in Leeds, says: “The Ilk­ley com­mu­nity is do­ing what it can to help Ben and his fam­ily ful­fil their dream and get Ben the surgery.”
