Service for youngster
A MIDNIGHT service has been held in support of Charlie Procter and his family as parishioners also begin 40 days of prayer and joint fasting.
Dozens of people gathered at Holy Trinity Free Church in Oswaldtwistle at midnight on Friday, October 19, for a candlelight service.
The Brave Church in Oswaldtwistle have also begun 40 days of prayer and fasting to ‘lift him and his amazing family up to God’.
A spokesperson said: “We’re praying for a miracle. We’d love it if everyone could do at least a day over the next 40 (October 18 to November 26).
“If you would like to be a part of fasting over the next 40 days, please email us at hello@bravechurch. co.uk to let us know which days you will be doing, we want to make sure each day is covered.”
Before the fundraising appeal was cancelled friends of Charlie Procter’s family attended the Brooks Club in Accrington for a superhero and princess party.
Organiser Lauren Gardner, from Oswaldtwistle, went to school with Amber and said the fancy dress event included a DJ, face painting and a raffle with more than 60 prizes donated from local businesses.
