An open invitation has been issued to anyone wishing to attend and say goodbye to the seven-year-old who died last week, five years after being diagnosed with cancer.

The funeral will be held at Christ Church in Higher Ince on Thursday, September 15, but mourners are asked to arrive outside Braiden’s home at 1.15pm as he makes his final journey to the church.

Braiden will then be buried at Westwood Cemetary.

Details of the wake are still being finalised.

Anyone attending is also asked to wear baby blue as this was Braiden’s favourite colour and to not wear black.

Braiden was just two-years-old when he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of childhood cancer.

He died at Derian House children’s hospice in Chorley last week.

Thousands of pounds have been donated through a crowd funding appeal to help cover the cost of the funeral.
