Fundraiser in mem­ory of Ju­nior

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A FAM­ILY fun day is tak­ing place on Satur­day at Weald­stone FC in mem­ory of a seven-yearold boy who died from a brain stem tu­mour.

Lorraine Brad­bury from Ruis­lip, with help from friends, is or­gan­is­ing the event in mem­ory of her son, Paul Speck Jnr, who would have cel­e­brated his 21st birth­day this year.

The fundraiser will run from noon to 6.30pm, with a bouncy castle, a bar­be­cue, a DJ, face­paint­ing, and a nail bar with pro­ceeds go­ing to Great Or­mond Street Hos­pi­tal. Ms Brad­bury said: “It’s for his 21st as my other kids all got cars and big items but he’s not here. So we’ll give Great Or­mond Street what we were go­ing to give him. Jnr’s the only per­son I’ve ever lost and GOSH is the only hos­pi­tal I’ve ever had deal­ings with. They were very good to me, they let me stay and brought me food. They’d call me if I had to go home.”

The football club has al­lowed use of the field, hall and bar for the event.
