Charity summer fete to raise money for boy's surgery


A local nursery is holding a summer fete to help raise money for a local boy’s cancer treatment.

Staff at Buttons & Bows Private Day Nursery in Atherton have arranged the fundraising event for Charlie Taylor, a local 4-year-old boy suffering from Stage four neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer.

An array of exciting family activities will take place at the fete including face painting, balloon modelling, games, prizes, wet sponge throwing, refreshment stalls and more. Entry is free and anyone who would like to join in the fun is welcome.

Charlie Taylor’s family hope to raise the £250,000 needed to take Charlie abroad for vital treatment which is not available in the UK. All proceeds from the Buttons & Bows Charity Summer Fete will go towards the Charlie Taylor Appeal to help them on their way.

Alison James, Nursery Manager at Buttons & Bows said: “At Buttons & Bows our priority is providing excellent care for the children in our local community. This extends to children like Charlie Taylor who need an extra special helping hand.

“We hope the people of Atherton will join us in raising as much money for Charlie and his family as possible on what promises to be a fun-filled day.”

Charlie’s grandmother, Veronica Marriott from Leigh said: “We’re raising money for Charlie so he can have treatment that isn’t available in the UK, giving him a better chance of the neuroblastoma not relapsing after his immunotherapy.

“Fundraising events like the Buttons & Bows Charity Summer Fete help Charlie by giving him the chance to receive the treatment that will give him the best chance of survival. Charlie is just four years old; he deserves the chance to become a man.”
