A family fun day held to say thank you to the charity that helped a little boy during his treatment for cancer raised more than £5,600.

Judith, Jonathan and Harry Dugdale hosted the event at Clitheroe Cricket Club, which was attended by around 200 children and their families.

Harry (5), a pupil at Waddington and West Bradford Primary School, recently underwent treatment for a Wilms tumour, a type of kidney cancer. His condition was diagnosed after his family spotted blood in his urine.

Entertainment on the day included a visit from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the cast of Frozen, face painting and snake corner.

Harry’s mum Judith commented: “We wanted to raise money for CLIC Sargent who helped throughout Harry’s treatment, but also to say thanks to all our family and friends and everyone who helped us along the way. I would especially like to thank the Castle Medical Group for their fast action, particularly Dr Flatley.

“Thanks also to Sarah Dawson and her team at Maxwells Cafe and Wine Bar, the main sponsors of the event, along with our other sponsor Dugdales Connected Smart Homes and Rick Cropper, who provided great entertainment all afternoon free of charge. Many of our family and friends helped both before and on the day and the cricket club gave us the venue and ground for the afternoon.

“I think everyone had a great day and I am over the moon at how much money we have raised. We couldn’t have got through the last 10 months or organised the event without such great support.”
