THE grandparents of a little boy who is fighting a debilitating condition are holding a coffee morning at their home to raise money for him to have pioneering surgery in America to help him to walk.
Sheila and Basil Weston are grandparents to three-year-old Harvey (pictured), who suffers from Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy meaning that he cannot walk and will always struggle to move around.
There is an operation that will improve his quality of life immeasurably called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy and occurs in St Louis Missouri, USA.
The family need to raise £50,000 to fund this operation and are asking for help to raise this money to allow Harvey the opportunity that most of us take for granted.
Mr and Mrs Weston are holding a coffee morning at their home 40 Brookhouses Road, Cheadle, on Saturday, April 6, from 10.30am until 12.30pm.
There will be a cake stall, bring and buy stall, tombola and raffle.
If anyone would like to donate to this very worthy cause, there is a collection point in the Smithfield Newshop, opposite the Post & Times offices, on The Smithfield Centre, Haywood Street, Leek.
