The life of Henry Allen will be celebrated tomorrow with people invited to come along and say goodnight and sweet dreams to the four-year-old.

A procession will pass along St Clements Drive, Bletchley at 3.30pm and a celebration of his life will take place at 6pm at the Doubletree by Hilton. The family has requested no-one wears black.

Henry passed away on October 20 after a battle with neuroblastoma. He touched the hearts of people across MK who took part in football tournaments, cake sales and fun days to raise funds for the youngster. Mum Dawn said: “Mark and I are lost for words at the support that has been shown throughout Henry’s battle with this vile disease. So many words of encouragement and the things that people have done in order to help raise money, has been truly amazing.

“Our beautiful angel united so many people and touched so many hearts. It is for this reason that we wanted to have a celebration of Henry open to those that have helped and supported us.”

> A world record attempt will be held at stadium:mk on Saturday to get as many people in one place wearing onesies for the Henry Allen Appeal.

Pre-register for tickets on Friday at the Hungry Horse, Broughton, or Wonderworld, or from 7am on the day at the box office. Gates open at 9am, the challenge starts at 10am.
