GROWN-ups turned the clock back on Saturday night to raise money for a disabled boy.

The Memorial Hall, Stotfold, echoed to the sounds of yesteryear when friends and family of six-year-old Bryn Willans gathered dressed in school uniform to raise money to buy him a battery-powered wheelchair

By the end of the evening £3,400 had been raised to make sure the wheelchair would be with Bryn before Christmas.

Bryn, who lives with his mum Sarah and sister Honor, five, at their home in Hitchin Road, Stotfold, suffers from cerebral palsy and is desperate to be more mobile which is why his mother hit on the idea of a special party to raise the cash for the wheelchair.

"He is a very determined little boy who knows what he wants to do," said Sarah.

"Bryn always wants to be involved when other children are doing things around him and loves the company of other children.

"He loves swimming and steam trains and aeroplanes. We take him to Nene Valley near Peterborough so he can enjoy the trains and go to Luton Airport to see the aircraft.

"Everyone who supported the disco on Saturday was wonderful and it now means so much to be able to offer Bryn the chance to have more mobility.
