Businesses from across north Essex have helped boost a fund to raise money for a youngster with a rare form of muscular dystrophy by more than £2,300.
Stanley, five, goes to Holland Haven Primary School and his family are looking to come up with around £20,000 to provide specialised equipment at their home.
They want to create a level and accessible garden with a therapy room and hydrotherapy tub which will become Stanley’s oasis.
Businesses dug deep for a raffle held at the recent Tendring Blue Ribbon Awards night at Clacton’s Princes Theatre and enough was raised to give a cheque for £2,307.50 to Stanley’s fund.
His father, Rob Newman, said: “This is a fantastic boost to our fund and we are very grateful to all those companies and individuals that supported the raffle.”
