Oskar has bilateral spastic cerebral palsy. He can't stand, sit or walk without help and is in constant pain with his muscles and joints. Without complex medical intervention, Oskar faces a life of continuing pain and will never be able to walk independently.

I would like to thank all our supporters and those of Torquay who gave so generously for Oskar‘s operation. This money, together with the Supporters Club quiz night and a donation from the Fans Forum, means the total donation from Bristol Rovers fans is in excess of £4,650 and I know this will greatly help boost Oskar’s operation appeal.
