A week-long ski holiday for two, skiing lesson with five-times Winter Games downhill Olympian Graham Bell and romantic weekend break for two will be auctioned at a fundraiser on Saturday.

However he has been offered a groundbreaking operation, developed in the United States. Launched in the UK at Great Ormond Street Hospital, Will’s parents, Rebecca and David, have been told there is no NHS funding for it.

The event, a party on the indoor piste, is being held at the Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead, from 8pm this Saturday November 30..

Tickets are £25, with the party including two hours on the slope, skiing, boarding or tobogganing, equipment and clothing hire and instruction.
