Efforts to raise £65,000 to fund an operation for two-year-old Jacob Baird were given a boost thanks to the help of a well-known comedian.
Stand-up comic Ed Byrne, who is known for appearing on shows like Mock The Week, appeared at Weston theatre The Playhouse this week.
He offered to hold a collection at the end of his show to raise money for Jacob, who needs the operation to be able to walk.
The collection raised £260 and the Baird family also got the chance to meet the comedian backstage after the show.
