A CHARITY event in Kilburn and Belper has raised £979 in aid of two “fantastic” boys who suffer from a severe nerve-wasting condition.
Twins Sam and Alex Bolton, who are aged five, have spinal muscular atrophy, which weakens muscles.
Moved by the boys’ plight, Shaun Bestwick and David Kinder organised then event. Shaun said: “It was a cracking day, really brilliant.”
The fun started with a football match at Kilburn Welfare between Belper All-Stars and The Grapes pub, in Belper. The All-Stars won 4-2.
Then there was food and darts at The Grapes, before entertainment from singer Sian Fowler and band Remand To Vegas at the George and Dragon in Belper.
