Ten family and friends raised £235 for a good cause by taking part in a 3k ‘Colour Run’ in Sleaford.

The money will be split between the Alexander Needham Fund and Willoughby School in Bourne.

Alexander is a seven-year-old Grantham boy who has an extremely rare neurodegenerative disorder called Batten disease, which affects cognitive impairment, sight and motor skills and causes seizures.

The ‘Colour Run’ was one of a number of fund-raising events organised by Carrie Ann Beck, Micky Stokes and other fund-raisers who are aiming to reach a £6,000 target.

Micky and Carrie gave a “massive thank you” to everyone who has supported the fund-raising drive.

Sarah Needham, Alexander’s mum, said: “As a family we are so overwhelmed by everyone’s help and support. We would like to say a massive thank you to my sister Carrie Ann Beck and my best friend Micky Stokes as none of this would have been possible without them.”
