A Norfolk business has set a fundraising target of £1500 to help a family hold a Christmas event to raise funds for their son's treatment.
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.
The seven-year-old had an operation to remove the tumour and now has leptomeningeal disease in the centre of his brain.
Doctors have suggested he has radiotherapy treatment in the UK, but his parents Jamie and Melanie Addy feel he's too young and want him to undergo less invasive treatment in Germany.
A spokesman for Stalham's Daddy Donuts dessert parlour said: 'We are helping Harry's family to hold a event this Christmas to help raise funds for his treatment. The £1,500 will help promote it and go towards catering and decorations.'
