Funds have been raised in memory of an inspirational boy who lost his battle with terminal illness aged seven.

Alfie Williams loved days spent at the Pine Trees Leisure Park near Skegness with mum Sam and dad Gareth during his short life.

Thoughts turned to Alfie on Saturday night when a cheque was presented to the Make A Wish Foundation during a Halloween party at the Croft Bank caravan park.

A total of £2,015 was donated to the children’s charity from a fishing match organised by Darren and Nicola Barks during the summer.

Make A Wish Foundation made Alfie’s wish to be Batman for the day come true before he passed away with a rare muscle fibre cancer in June.

Dad Gareth said: “Skegness is one of our favourite places and several people from the caravan park attended Alfie’s funeral. Make A Wish Foundation is an outstanding cause and hopefully it is something we can continue to support.”

Make A Wish volunteer Simon Cross said: “As well as being a volunteer my own daughter had same cancer as Alfie, so I have seen what it is like from all angles and know how important wishes are.”
