A caring mum has organised a charity fun day in support of young boy’s cancer fight.
Demi Dobson, 39, has organised the family event on Saturday, August 27, at The Golden Lion in South Hylton to raise funds to send battling Bradley Lowery abroad for treatment for his neuroblastoma.
The five-year-old from Blackhall was diagnosed with the cancer aged two and battled with it for more than two years before he was given the all clear in 2014.
But last month his family were given the devastating diagnosis that his cancer has returned and they are now campaigning to send him to the United States for life-changing treatment costing around £700,000.
Family friend Miss Dobson said that as a mother herself to four-year-old son Archie, she was particularly touched by Bradley’s plight and wanted to help.
Miss Dobson, of Rosemount, South Hylton, said: “Bradley’s is a story that will touch many people and particularly those who have children themselves.
“From being just one and two years old he has been in and out of hospital and as I have a son myself who is a similar age, I have often thought that if I was in that position I don’t know how I would cope.
“I felt that I wanted to help his family raise as much as possible, so I organised this charity event.
“The event will run from 11am to 4pm and entry is free, but we hope to raise £1,000 for his cause through donations.
“His family need to raise thousands for treatment so we are hoping as many people as possible will come along to the event.”
The event will feature various family fun activities including face painting, balloon workshops and refreshments.
