A LITTLE boy who lives with a number of health issues will be attending a fund-raising disco which is being held in his honour.

Oscar Povey, pictured, has a rare genetic condition called Charge syndrome and had six operations within the first seven weeks of his life.

The one-year-old, who lives in Leek, is wearing a corrective helmet because, due to all of the time he has spent in hospital, he was a severe case of Plagiocephaly (aka flat head syndrome). The corrective helmet is not available on the NHS. However, his family and friends raised the £1,950 so that he could have one.

Now his family have pledged to raise as much cash as possible for the organisations which have helped him

And members of the community in Leek are helping the Povey family with their fund-raising pledge, including local DJ Anthony Grain who hosts the ever-growing Blitz Nights.

Mr Grain will be hosting his next eighties Blitz Night on Friday, January 31, at the Ball Haye Green Sports and Social Club in Leek.

Tickets, priced at £5 are available from the Phone Net Shop in Sheepmerket, Leek.
