Friends and family gathered to show their support for little Maizie Rae Fowell at a fun filled charity night in Skegness.

The plight of the four-year-old, who is bravely battling leukaemia, inspired crowds of people to attend the event at the Lumley Bar and Restaurant.

A total of £3,522 was raised, divided equally between the children’s cancer charity 
Clic Sargent and helping 
Maizie Rae.

Maizie is being treated at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham where Clic Sargent provide home from home family accommodation.

Mum Billie said: “It was an amazing night, I am overwhelmed by the generosity and support of people in Skegness. Maizie enjoyed every moment, she is normally quite shy but because everyone was in such high spirits she loved it. She just got upset when her uncle, Dean, had to have his 
legs waxed.

“She is doing better than expected and recently started at Richmond School for three days a week.”

The evening included children’s entertainment, karaoke, music, and raffle and was organised by Maizie’s aunt, Leanne Halliday, and the Lumley manager Gemma MacDonald.
