The Wellfield in Beech Hill put on a packed programme of activities to help four-year-old Molly Fleming and her family and raised in excess of £1,700.

Youngsters got to try out a climbing wall, enjoy a donkey ride and meet Cinderella during the afternoon before the pub put on further entertainment for older fund-raisers in the evening.

Molly has a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer, and is about to fly out to the States for proton beam therapy.

Her parents Paul Fleming and Claire Grundy are raising £5,000 so the family can stay together while she receives treatment in the USA.

The fund-raising drive is also being supported by former mayor Coun Phyll Cullen.
