Warm the Cockles

When a queue starts forming the first thing you think of is …FOMOers, Spice Girls tickets or a bargain sale. But you would all be wrong if you saw the line of 4,800 plus lining up in the pouring rain in the UK over the weekend. They weren’t there for a sale, or concert tickets, they were all there to get tested. Tested for being a potential stem cell match to save a 5-year-old boy fighting a rare cancer. Yes, young, old, males, females, and every nationality under the sun queued up outside a primary school in Worchester in hope of being a match for little Oscar. The desperate parents did a shout out in a last ditched effort to save their little boy. You can check out the campaign here  ‘Hand in Hand for Oscar’.
