Friends and family of a four-year-old with muscular dystrophy are raising money to fund research into the condition.

Laura Bindon and her friends raised £1,558 with a disco at the Ring O’Bells in support of Luke’s Army.

The charity has been set up for Luke, aged four, from Nailsea who has muscular dystrophy.

His mum Lisa Cramphorn said the diagnosis ‘rocked their world’ and the only thing which has kept them positive is the hope of medical advances.

Friends and family are hoping to raise £100,000 for Muscular Dystrophy UK and people can donate at www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/muscular-dystrophy/lukes-army

Organisers would like to thank Simpsons Solicitors, the Ring O’ Bells, Transmission DJ and businesses which donated raffle prizes.

The next fundraiser is a Nailsea Juniors Santa Run at Grove Sports Centre tomorrow (Sunday).
