THOUSANDS of pounds will be raised for charity following a 48-hour sponsored walk in memory of a popular little boy.

Darren Davies was joined by family and friends on his walking mission at the weekend and the group raised nearly £2,000 from the collection alone.

Darren’s seven-year-old son Harry died last year after being struck down by leukaemia.

The Davies family spent the last five weeks of Harry’s life at Charlton Farm in Wraxall and Darren, aged 37, of Vine Gardens, Worle, organised the event to give something back to the organisation.

Since Harry’s death, his family has raised cash for Children’s Hospice South West through the Raise A Smile For Harry campaign, holding auctions, raffles and a circus show.

The walk took place from Friday to Sunday when Harry’s father, along with eight supporters, did circuits of the town’s seafront during the day and the Grand Pier during the night.
