Bailee's parents Lee and Jemma, sister Gracie-Leigh and baby Darcie are members of the club, where Bailee used to enjoy watching his dad play football and playing with his cousins and friends.

Lee said: “Jemma and I would like to thank the Grove for supplying the food and venue, Avril's for the bench and all the friends and family who not only came on the day to remember a cheeky little boy who was always smiling and joking, but also for the support given in the past year.

“Plans are in place to raise money to help research into 
this awful and incurable condition.”
