Fun day aims to help Jude walk
A FUN day is being held in Bitton to raise money for surgery for a four-year-old who cannot walk.
The fundraising event at Avon Valley Railway was due to take place on Sunday in support of Jude Noble.
The Kingswood youngster was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when he was nine months old and the condition means that the muscles in his leg are very stiff, preventing him from walking or standing on his own.
His family is raising £31,000 to pay for Jude to have surgery at Frenchay Hospital to ease the tightness in his legs and cover the costs of additional physiotherapy after the operation.

There will also be the chance to throw custard pies at a councillor and the opportunity to see one of the Olympic torches.
Jude's family and friends have already raised more than £11,000 towards the selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) surgery, which is not routinely available on the NHS.
The fun day will run from 12 midday until 4pm on Sunday.

Jude's mum Marie has previously said: "He wants to walk on his own. His favourite phrase is 'let me do it myself'.
"He is so determined and he wants to run and play football and do soft play, all the things a four-year-old wants to do."
