The three-year-old can’t race around like his classmates at Busy Bees in Bamber Bridge due to a genetic condition, but that doesn’t stop him having fun.

In fact, the soon-to-be four-year-old has been adopted by the nursery, where everyone is busy raising money to buy him a special portable bed.

Emma Gore, from the nursery said: “Dylan isn’t up on his feet yet but he gets around with his little walking frame and is a popular member of the class.

“He recently got a special bed to stop him hurting himself at night and we as a nursery are supporting the family so they can get a portable version to enable them to go away.

“We’ve called it Doing it For Dylan and each week we are doing something different to raise money.

“We’ve had things like a cake sale and we did a toddle trail and things like face 
painting.

“We have an ongoing raffle which has received fantastic response from local business donating things like gym passes, a family meal at the Gusto Italia, we actually have more than 40 prizes.”

Dylan has had the specialised bed on trial and according to his mum Aimee it has changed the family’s life.

Emma added: “We have set up a go funding page as well and response has been amazing.”

She added that Ribby Hall in Wrea Green has offered to provide a short stay in a holiday home at the facility for the whole family once the target to buy the travel cot has been met.

Emma added that Dylan’s family has been overjoyed by the response.

And mum Aimee said they are looking forward to being able to spend time away from home as a family.
