Tony Hudgell’s 10k walk

At just 41 days old, Tony suffered horrific abuse at the hands of his biological parents. He suffered multiple fractures, dislocations, blunt trauma to face leading to multi-organ failure, toxic-shock and sepsis. He ended up on life support and seconds from death.  

Then, sadly in 2017, he needed to have both his legs amputated due to those extreme injuries. His left hip is dislocated and missing the ball joint due infection, he has hand issues and deaf in his right ear.  

However, even though Tony suffered so much at the start of his life, today he is a bright, happy and confident little boy, who loves life. And we could not be prouder of him. 

Since seeing Captain Tom on the TV, Tony has wanted to do his own challenge and raise some pennies for the wonderful Evelina London Children’s Hospital, his second home.  

Tony has recently been learning to walk on his new legs with crutches, and throughout June wants to walk 10 kilometres to help raise money for Evelina London, the hospital he has been treated throughout his life. 


Every year, Evelina London provides vital care and support for more than 95,000 children and young people from across London and the South East. Your donations in support of Tony will help make an enormous difference to their work and enable the Evelina to do everything possible to ensure that all children in their care can live their best lives, today and tomorrow.
