Jacob has cerebal palsy and the surgery would help him control his legs. This event was just one of a number of ways his family are hoping to raise the funds.

The family fun day took place on Saturday at Baytree Recreation Ground in Baytree Road.

Jacob’s family managed to stomach a number of bugs, insects, worms and fermented eggs in a bid to bolster their fundraising.

Visitors were also able to take part in carnival games and get to grips with a number of unusual animals.
