THE family of a young boy are holding a fundraiser to pay for ongoing treatment he needs after life-changing surgery.

Four-year-old Aiden Farrell, of Gosport, underwent selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery to help him walk.

He needed the operation as he suffers from cerebral palsy.

Now his mum Sara, of Grange Crescent, is putting on the fun day at the Queen’s Head in Brockhurst Road, Gosport, tomorrow.

There will be a bouncy castle, a magician, a barbecue and a signed Pompey shirt will be auctioned off. It starts at 10am and finishes at 5pm.

It comes after Aiden’s surgery has seen him walking more, Sara said.

She said: ‘He’s doing fantastically, he’s walking more with his sticks.’

As reported, people in the community raised thousands of pounds for Aiden after he appeared in The News.

He originally needed funding for different surgery.
