A Waddington family will host a family fun day to raise money in thanks for the support received during their four-year-old son’s treatment for cancer.

Harry Dugdale, a Reception pupil at Waddington and West Bradford Primary School, was initially thought to have a blockage in his kidney, but was then diagnosed with a cancerous Wilms tumour in July last year – just a few weeks before starting school. Following an operation to remove the tumour and more than 16 weeks of chemotherapy, he has now been given the all clear.

We are so grateful for the amazing care received throughout Harry’s treatment

Mum Judith

Harry’s mum Judith said: “We are so grateful for the amazing care received throughout Harry’s treatment. The consultants and nurses did an excellent job, but we then came into contact with the CLIC Sargent charity who help to support children and young people with cancer. They provided us with great support and made things we had to deal with as easy as possible for us as a family.”

With Harry now well on the road to recovery, the family wanted to find a way to say thank you to the charity and decided a family fun day on Sunday, May 3rd at Clitheroe Cricket Club would be a good idea. Judith added: “We have been absolutely bowled over by offers of help from family and friends. Attractions include giant games, soft play and a bouncy castle, an animal corner, face painting, a lads and dad’s cricket coaching session, plus a kid’s disco and raffle.”

Entry is £5 for children one and over (free for adults and babies). Tickets can be bought on the day or in advance at www.picatic.com/charityfamilyfunday. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/CCCFamilyfunday
