THERE will be three days of fun this Bank Holiday – all in aid of a young boy.

Seventeen-month-old Jack Bolton has a rare genetic condition called Lowe syndrome causing him to be blind. He also has kidney and development problems.

His parents Emma Wood and Simon Bolton have been fundraising for sensory play equipment for their son and were delighted when the landlords of The Heron Pub, in Havant, asked if they could help.

A fundraising extravaganza kicks off on Saturday at 10am and does not finish until Bank Holiday Monday at 10pm.

Emma, from Millbrook Drive, West Leigh, said: ‘It’s going to be huge. It coincides with my 30th birthday on the Saturday and all our friends and family are going. We’re all really excited.

‘And we will all be wearing our Jack’s Future T-shirts.’

There will be lots going on, including a bouncy castle and live music.

So far more than £2,500 has been raised.
