An action-packed family fun day is being held to raise funds for a severely disabled four-year-old boy.

Preston Wallis, from Waterlooville, is quadriplegic and has cerebral palsy.

His family need to raise £13,000 to build an outdoor space for Preston so he can have physio and have a play area.

About 150 to 200 people are expected to attend the event at the Hampshire Rose in London Road, Widley from 1pm to 5pm on Sunday.

Bands, entertainers and bouncy castles will entertain visitors.

Several companies have donated their time and special raffle prizes for the cause.

A big community photo will be taken on the day to commemorate the event.

Since June last year, the family have raised £8,400 with support from friends and family, but now they are entering the difficult final stretch of fundraising.

Organiser Lucy Heard said: ‘It’s not about wanting something for Preston, they really need it and that’s the difference.’
