PEOPLE gathered together to enjoy a fun day to raise money for a boy with cerebral palsy.

Louis McKnight, three, is having surgery later this month.

Louis, from Paulsgrove, has spastic diplegia and needs money to help pay for the aftercare for the next two years.

Staff at the Co-op, in Highlands Road, Fareham organised the fun day yesterday, featuring face painting, a raffle and a bouncy castle.

Since March, £25,000 has been raised for Louis.

Mum Natasha, 30, said: ‘We are self-funding to provide physio and to buy equipment.

‘It’s just overwhelming. It doesn’t seem real that we have got that money.’
