The friends and family of a Northampton father, who is suffering from cancer, are trying to raise £25,000 for a life-saving operation.
Loved-ones of Charlie Fidler, aged 34, will host a variety of events in the next few months to try to raise the funds to send him to Belgium for the surgery in May.
Mr Fidler, who lives with his partner, Katie, and their daughter, Georgia, was diagnosed three years ago with a rare form of cancer called pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP).
His friends and family have set up a charity called Charlie’s Angels to raise funds and will host their next event, a golf day, at Kingsthorpe Golf Club on April 12.
Philippa Harris, who is a friend of Mr Fidler’s and Godmother to Georgia, said: “While having chemotherapy in 2011, Charlie became a father to a beautiful girl, Georgia, who is now almost two.
“This operation is a chance for Charlie to see Georgia grow up and a chance for Georgia to have a daddy. The surgery is life-saving. We want to encourage people to support our events and donate. Without the money Charlie will not be able to have the operation.”
Former Northampton School for Boys pupil, Mr Fidler, who used to play rugby at Northampton Old Scouts Rugby Club, is currently undergoing chemotherapy. For details of events visit www.charliesangels2013.co.uk
