Harry Addy, from Rivermead, Stalham, has a spinal cord tumour and his family need to raise £70,000 for specialist Proton therapy treatment overseas, as it’s not available on the NHS. They have already raised £23,000.

Harry’s mother Melanie said: “We are still trying to raise awareness of Harry’s journey and highlight his justgiving page.

“We did the inflatable run - the leap of faith was awful but Daisy, Harry’s ten-year-old sister did it first, so I couldn’t not do it.

“Thanks to my team. These guys are awesome. It was a fun way to raise some awareness.”

Harry, seven, had an operation to remove the tumour and doctors have suggested he has radiotherapy treatment in the UK, but his parents want him to undergo less invasive treatment in Germany.
