A trip of a lifetime to Disneyland was enjoyed by 20 families from across the country thanks to the Liam Fairhurst Foundation.

Around 80 people packed their bags and set off on the adventure thanks to continued fund raising by the Soham-based charity.

The foundation, started by Liam’s brother Callum, realises the importance of helping everybody around young people including parents and siblings.

A spokesman said: “Many of these young people such as siblings are forgotten about and the foundation ensures they are helped whilst still helping the young person during, before and after time at hospital.”

The foundation provides grants for families with a child affected by cancer, disabilities or illness, provides grants to organisations who help with things like respite care and also the annual Disneyland trip.

The next big fund raising event is a Skydive on April 4.
