A school boy who has overcome a life-threatening brain tumour is planning several events to help raise money to help other youngsters like him.

Cory Davison was diagnosed with a severe malignant tumour the size of a plum around his brain stem in February 2011.

But after a course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, is now on the road to recovery – and the eight-year-old is planning a Pedal for Pounds event on Sunday, May 26, along the promenade at Blyth to raise money to help other youngsters like himself.

Cory’s grandad, Ted Davison, said: “Cory being the young warrior we all know and love, has expressed a wish to raise funds himself through the bike ride.

“The challenge to ride a two wheeled bike due to his balance issue is too great, so he want to do the ride on a three wheeled bike.

“He is full of enthusiam and been in training over the last months, which has built up his stamina and leg muscles.”

All the funds raised are going to Saras Hope Foundation, which gives children with cancer special memories.

And on Bank Holiday Monday, May 27, The Cory United Cup at Blyth Town FC will see four teams compete for the Cory United Cup.

There will also be a family fun day, bouncy castle, crossbar challenge, hardest shot competion and more.
