AFTER reading a Free Press story about little Joshua Bacon, who suffers problems with his eyesight, Sudbury police officers have bought the three-year-old some much-needed equipment.

And this week his mum, Jen, said she wanted to thank the police for their kindness from the bottom of her heart.

Joshua has a condition called congenital nystagmus, which affects one in 2,000 people, causing problems with their sight. He was diagnosed with the condition as a baby.

Now, thanks to the police, Joshua is the proud owner of a tilted desk, some extra large-print story books and a special desktop magnifier for reading, which was donated from the Shona Gill Fund at Sudbury Police Station.

Jen said: “They got in touch after seeing us in the Free Press and kindly bought Joshua some much-needed equipment.

“We would like to say thank you to them for the generous donations as it wouldn’t have been possible without the story.”
