A FAMILY fun day is being arranged next month to help raise funds for children suffering from a life-threatening brain tumour.

Little Cory Davison, pictured, was diagnosed with a tumour the size of a plum wrapped around his brain stem in February after months of feeling unwell.

The brave seven-year-old, of Pecket Close in Blyth, underwent a six-hour operation to remove the tumour, spending several days in intensive care before undergoing gruelling radiotherapy treatment.

And Cory’s family are now raising funds to help other children in similar situations.

Grandad Ted, 64, has created two Facebook groups – We Love Cory Davison, to let people around the world know how the youngster is getting on – and Cory United.

A family fun day has been arranged on the Saturday, September 3, at The Kitty Brewster in Blyth, from noon.

There will be a bouncy castle, beat the real goalie challenge, shoot some hoops, face painting, barbecue, live music, ‘Cory-oke’, bingo, a grand raffle and an auction.

Ted said: “The star attraction will be the buck tucker trial, where six contestants will eat a strange starter, a bizarre main course and an eye-catching desert to boost fundraising for Cory’s appeal.” For more details visit the We Love Cory or Cory United’s Facebook page.
