FREDDIE PERRY – the youngster killed crossing a road in Didcot – would have loved a charity scooter run done by ‘superheroes’, his parents have said.
The band of heroes went from Abingdon to Didcot on children’s scooters to riase money for the Freddie Perry Foundation on Saturday.
The 10-year-old died after he was hit by a car in Oxford Crescent, Didcot last September. The driver was absolved of any blame.
Following their son’s death, parents Lea and Judith Perry set up the foundation to raise money for road safety schemes.
Coach driver Mr Perry, 40, took part using his son’s scooter. He said: “He would have loved it. We dressed as superheroes because Freddie loved superheroes.”
The event raised £1,300.
