The youngster has a spinal cord tumour and his family needs to raise the money for overseas treatment, as it has not been made available to him through the NHS.

Mother Melanie Addy said: "The Harry's Journeys funday at Stalham Sports Centre on Saturday, August 10 was very successful. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and candy floss was a big hit. Harry loved the animals. It was perfect. We raised around £2000."

The family are hoping that Harry will have the treatment at the start of next year. He is still having weekly chemotherapy.
