SCHOOL pals of cancer sufferer Becky Bell showed their support for the brave six-year-old and raised more than £2,000.
Adorable Becky smiled from start to finish as hundreds of people turned out at a fun day at Rift House Primary School.
School friends of Becky joined teachers and family in enjoying the wide range of activities on offer at the event.
And kind-hearted residents helped to raise an impressive £2,315 – moving Becky closer to her dream trip to Disneyland Paris.
Generous people throughout the town have now helped to raise more than £8,000 for the youngster who is suffering from brain cancer.
Her parents, Julie and Mark, enjoyed the event with Becky on Saturday and said it was “absolutely brilliant”.
The fun day was organised by Sarah Langley and Beverley Hill, parents of two of Becky’s classmates. Sarah, 28, an unemployed mum of Katie, eight, Olivia, six, and Alfie, three, who lives in Masefield Road, Hartlepool with her children and husband, Brian, 27, a youth worker, said: “I am absolutely over the moon to have raised as much as we did for Becky.
“Olivia wanted to do something to help raise money as soon as she heard about Becky.
“We had a brilliant turn out, a lot of the teachers came along and Becky had a smile on her face all day.”
Becky’s mum Julie, 40, also a mum to Vicki, 22, and Mark, 11, said: “The event went really well.
“Becky really enjoyed herself, it was lovely for her to see all of her school friends.”
Becky was diagnosed with brain cancer last month after medics detected a tumour the size of a golf ball.
She is now in her third of 12 weeks of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
After the first six weeks, the Rift House Primary School pupil has a four-week break, when her loving family are hoping to take her to Disneyland Paris.
Neighbours, family, friends and businesses have all donated and organised events to help to fund the dream trip.
Jamie Barnecutt, 32, owner of North East Home Loans, based in Park Road, Hartlepool, set up a website where people can donate.
So far £2,740 has been raised on the site.
