THE friends and family of a boy who died last year will sell branded goods in his memory for charity.

Harry Davies, aged seven, died last year from leukaemia at Charlton Farm in Wraxall, which is part of Children’s Hospice South West.

The Mendip Green First School pupil was first diagnosed with a rare disease of the bones and soft tissue, known as Ewing’s sarcoma, when he was just three-and-a-half.

After recovering, he then developed acute myeloid leukaemia in 2010, and even though the brave youngster had a bone marrow transplant, last year hospital tests revealed he had relapsed.

His loved ones have ordered goods with Raise a Smile For Harry on them to sell in aid of Children’s Hospice South West.

They will be available to be on sale at any event raising funds for the hospice through Raise a Smile for Harry, including a 48-walking challenge from July 13-15 on the Grand Pier and seafront in Weston.

Packs are available for resale for individuals in their own workplaces or social groups.

They are also available through the Raise a Smile for Harry Facebook page or by contacting Claire Bayliss at
