Brave Wirral boy back on the bins after beating leukaemia

Merseyside based waste management firm Gaskells are delighted to share some very good news about a young boy called Daniel Kinsella from Liscard on the Wirral.

Daniel was diagnosed with leukaemia days before his 5th birthday, and his dream job was to be a binman. At the age of 6, while he was still battling the disease, Daniel became Gaskells youngest ever binman, joining their crew on one of their rounds in Crosby.

Four years on, at the grand old age of 10, Daniel has been given the all clear, which is fantastic news, and he’s still obsessed with all things bin related. On Tuesday 4th September, he’ll be back at Gaskells head office in Bootle, Liverpool for a tour of the recycling plant. He’ll also be joining one of Gaskells crews in New Brighton in the truck which was named after him.

 Gaskells Commercial Director Denise Banks said:

“Daniel’s story touched everyone when his mum contacted us back in 2014, so it was the least we could do to invite him out on one of our rounds.To get the update that he’s got the all clear, and he and his family can now look toward to a normal life is absolutely fantastic, and we’re very much looking forward to seeing him again.”
