APPRENTICES have handed over nearly £750 to charity after being inspired by a young boy with cystic fibrosis.

A team of apprentices from Defence Munitions, in Gosport, raised £748.45 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

It comes after they met Ethan Marvin, six, a pupil at Lee-on-the-Solent Infant School.

The group met little Ethan at his home in Magister Drive, Lee-on-the-Solent.

As previously reported in The News, Ethan’s mum Karina, 35, had told them about his condition.

He was diagnosed at two days old, and has to undergo physiotherapy.

The youngster takes 30 to 40 digestive enzyme and vitamin tablets a day.
