Everyone is invited to a charity family fun day in St Albans to help raise money for a terminally ill child.
Shay Murray is a 10-year-old with a rare disease called Pearson’s Syndrome - he is slowly losing his sight, hearing and muscle control, and is having to spend an increasing amount of time in hospital.
About £30,000 is needed to convert his family home into a palliative care centre so Shay can spend his last days in comfort around his family.
Oaklands College is hosting the family event to help his cause. There will be a silent auction and raffle, with prizes including an overnight stay for two at St Michael’s Manor, signed sports paraphernalia, restaurant vouchers, and spa days.
There will also be performances by Rock Choir, the Murchu Duiginn School of Irish Dancing and Mystic Mark the Magician, as well as mini train rides, face painting, and an animal corner.

Activities include a tombola and beat the goalie, and refreshments from a licensed bar and barbecue will be on sale.
It is free for entry and parking and open from 11am to 4pm on May 21 at the college campus on Hatfield Road.
