Brave boy inspires fund-raising efforts
Fund-raising events, inspired by a little boy with a debilitating genetic condition, have helped collect thousands of pounds for charity.
Seven-year-old Ollie Dryden, from Amble, has neurofibromatosis (NF) type one. He endures a daily battle, suffering learning difficulties, mobility issues and tumours, among other things.
Along the way, The Neuro Foundation has given the youngster and his family much-needed support.

Amy said: “Thank you to everyone who supported this. Ollie enjoyed being involved and took part in the kids’ fancy-dress walk – a huge personal challenge.
“I have met other local people affected by NF and others are now taking part in their own challenges in aid of The Neuro Foundation.”
