Fund-raiser for baby

Have your say

SUPPORTERS of a toddler battling leukaemia for the second time have organised a charity day.

Brave four-year-old Bailey Cooper was due to have a life-saving bone marrow transplant, after a matching donor was found, as revealed in the Echo in May.

Now friends have organised a fundraising day in Sunderland, on Saturday, October 6.

Volunteers will be stripping off for a sponsored body wax.

There will also be raffles, a disco and bouncy castle to entertain the crowds.

Little Bailey was originally diagnosed with the killer condition when he was just nine months old.

The Shiney Row youngster was eventually given the all clear earlier this year.

However, his family have been told he has developed a much more aggressive form of the disease. The event at the Comrades Club, South Hylton, which will take place from noon until 5pm.
