A computer engineer from Peckham has raised over £300 in just six hours to help pay for his flight to visit his sister in Australia, who is suffering from a life threatening condition.

Joshua Preston took to the streets of London after receiving around £700 from friends and family, but donations helped him reach the £984 he needed.

Joshua's 14-year-old sister, who lives in Melbourne, suffers from a life threatening diabetic condition.
