Thanks a million, MK!

Milton Keynes has pulled together to smash the £500,000 ‘Mad About Harry’ fundraising target, enabling 10-year-old cancer victim Harry Banks to receive the immediate trial treatment he needs abroad. All future donations will support any further treatment he requires or help other children in the fight against Neuroblastoma

Give yourselves a huge pat on the back, as Milton Keynes has pulled together to raise the half-a-million pounds Harry Banks needs to fund his cancer trial treatment abroad.

The 10-year-old from Woburn Sands has relapsed Neuroblastoma brain cancer and the expensive clinical trial was his only lifeline, after all options on the NHS were exhausted.

But thankfully the amazing people of Milton Keynes have come together to support one of their own, giving Harry a chance to live.

Mad About Harry spokesperson Heather Mead said: “The support for Harry has been incredible. Offline and online donations combined have now exceeded £650,000.

“There are many wonderful events planned which will push this figure still higher. A huge thank you for your support and donations that have helped us achieve this for Harry.

“Your support has resulted in his parents, Nina and Russ, being able to focus on the most important thing now, which is looking after Harry and preparing him for the difficult treatment ahead.”

Several local schools have supported the appeal, including Husborne Crawley Lower.
