Family fun day to be held for young boy

Have your say

CARING Sallyann Payer is hosting a family fun day for a good cause.

The 52-year-old is planning the event – with rides, stalls and games plus more – to take place at Admiral Lord Nelson School, in Dundas Lane, Copnor, on Sunday, July 2.

She runs Sal’s Candy Cones and Treats and found the Lennon’s Goal Appeal through Facebook.

Lennon Beech, four, from Southsea, was diagnosed with severe global development delay after he contracted meningitis at just three weeks old. He is now registered blind, and has epilepsy, limited mobility and fluid on the brain.

His family launched a campaign two years ago in order to send him to the USA for stem cell treatment.

Sallyann said: ‘I chose to support Lennon because his treatment isn’t government funded. He’s local and his parents work really hard. He needs to raise £25,000.’

So far, £19,000 has been raised. For more on the fete email
