GENEROUS residents continue to show “unbelievable” support for cancer sufferer Becky Bell.

Four events have taken place in the last 10 days, helping to rack up more than £7,000.

The fantastic support of people throughout Hartlepool and east Durham is bringing Becky ever closer to a dream trip to Disneyland Paris.

As reported in the Mail, the adorable seven-year old had her life turned upside down when she was diagnosed with brain cancer.

She is two weeks away from finishing a gruelling six-week course of chemotherapy and radiotherapy before a four-week break.

In that time, her loving family are hoping to take the Rift House Primary School pupil to Disney.

So far kind residents have helped to raise around £15,000.

And despite her intense treatment, the battling youngster is even managing to make it to events herself.

Becky’s uncle, George Bell, organised an evening at South Durham Social Club, in the town’s Westbourne Road.

The action-packed evening raised an impressive £2,800.

George, 52, a technical surveyor who lives in Ventnor Avenue, Hartlepool, said: “I said on the night, if love could make you better then Becky would be the healthiest girl in the world.

“The support has been absolutely fantastic, it was a brilliant night.”

Family friend Alan Addleton, 49, also organised an evening to boost the funds.

Tickets for the event at Hartlepool Catholic Club, in the town’s Marlowe Road, sold out within days of going on sale.

Alan, a DJ in the town, was ecstatic after the night, which featured raffles, auctions and a performance from band Central Park, raised £2,731.

“I am just over the moon with the people of Hartlepool,” said Alan.

“I was so proud of everyone who helped to make the event such a success.”

Families turned out in force for an event at the Park Hotel, in Park Road, Hartlepool.

Town hip-hop stars Ruff Diamond performed and youngsters also enjoyed a host of crafts and games.

A friend of Becky’s older sister, Vicki, 22, also organised an equestrian event at Tunstall Farm, off Valley Drive, in Hartlepool.

Laura Allen, 22, was delighted to raise £600 which was all donated to the family.

Becky’s parents Julie, 40, and Mark, 35, expressed huge appreciation to everyone who has supported Becky.

Julie, also a mum to Mark, 11, said: “The support has been unbelievable.

“Becky is doing well at the minute. She is tired, obviously, due to the treatment but she has only got two more weeks then she has a well-earned break.”

After a four week break Becky will start a tough six-month course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

The brave youngster will undergo one intense week of treatment every month.
