Thank you… Terina takes part in walking challenge!

By Mark McGoldrick

IN May 2021, the people of Fermanagh were touched when then three-year old James Cox took part in a mammoth walking challenge to raise money for the Children’s Heartbeat Trust.

Shortly after he was born, James was diagnosed with a hole in his heart, along with several other abnormalities and problems to his major organ.


His condition deteriorated and the Mulleek-native was whipped across the water to London where he had to undergo major open-heart surgery.

Thankfully, after several months and years of treatment at various hospitals and support from non-profit organisations, James recovered from his condition.

In May, the little inspiration completed a ‘Mile a Day in May’ fundraiser and he raised a staggering £6,361 for the organisation.
