A pub fund-raiser, to remember a little boy who died 10 years ago, collected more than £4,500 for the children’s Disney ward at Northampton General Hospital and for Leukemia Research.

Emma Doherty helped her friend, Emily Panter, to organise the event at The Sun Inn in Hardingstone in memory of Emily’s cousin, Reece Meakins, who died of leukemia, aged nine. Funds have been used to buy an iPad, DVDs and toys for children on the Disney ward, and also to support the Leukemia Research charity.
