Family fun day raising money for Raise A Smile For Harry at Banwell Football Club.


BUS drivers from Worle held a football tournament on Sunday to raise money in honour of a little boy who died aged seven.

Claire Bayliss, who works for First Bus, chose to raise money for the Raise A Smile For Harry appeal, which is gathering funds for the Children’s Hospice South West, which is based in Wraxall.

The Raise A Smile For Harry group was formed to honour and remember Harry Davies, Claire’s former neighbour who died four years ago at the age of seven following a battle with leukaemia at the hospice’s Charlton Farm base.

Claire, of Vine Gardens, organised the competition with her fellow bus driver Pete Sharp, and they captained the two teams – Pete for First and Claire for the hospice team, which included Darren Davies, Harry’s father.
