Campaigners battling to raise £250,000 to send a poorly youngster to America for treatment have organised two fundraising nights.
Logan North, five, of Collins Road, Bamber Bridge, near Preston, has Stage IV neuroplastoma and his family is trying to raise the cash to send him to hospital in America for the final part of his treatment, as the chance of relapse is much lower with advanced treatment in the US.
Hannah North who is Logan’s cousin has organised a fundraising night at The Welcome Tavern in Hennel Lane, Walton-le-Dale, on Saturday to keep the cash rolling in.
Her dad Gary, 49, of Albert Road, Leyland, said: “It is my daughter’s cousin and we want to raise the funds to send him to America.
“We would like to raise the £250,000 that night but every penny we get is a penny nearer to the target.”
There will also be an event at the Original Ship Inn, in Towngate, Leyland, on Saturday September 15.
From 12pm to 4pm there will be a kids’ day at the pub with bouncy castles and fun activities, while in the evening from 7.30pm there will be an adults’ fundraising event with raffles and prizes.
Recently Kelly Rampling, of Eversham Close, Penwortham, organised a charity call for Logan at the Wellington Park in Leyland, which raked in £8,000 for the appeal.
A mystery donor gave £5,000 on the night and the ball itself raised another £3,000 and PFG Plumbing Services gave £1,000.
