Guy and Yvonne’s son Murray was born with a cleft lip and palate in November 2007. Murray a happy, thriving baby had his lip and palate repaired when he was only 8 months old. Seeing the transformation of Murray motivated Guy, with the help of his wife Yvonne to raise urgently needed funds for Operation Smile, so that children who are not as lucky as Murray, will also have access to free treatment in the developing world.
‘We feel so fortunate about the care Murray received in this country and know that this is not the case worldwide. Our target was simply to raise enough money for 10 operations for overseas kids born with cleft lips and palates’.
Guy and Yvonne actually exceeded their personal target and have raised enough funds for 15 new smiles, after taking part and successfully completing the gruelling Chester Triathlon.
