A charity bootcamp fitness session is being held to boost the Mad About Harry fundraising appeal.

The fun fitness class, to be held at Fulbrook School, Woburn Sands, on February 10, is raising money to support 10-year old Harry Banks who needs ground-breaking treatment in New York and Barcelona for a rare cancer.

Harry, aged ten, has Neuroblastoma, an aggressive and rare children’s cancer. He has been in remission for two and a half years but in November 2018 Harry’s family were given the news that he had suffered a relapse and needed emergency operation to remove the tumour from his brain. Neuroblastoma has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood cancers, and a relapse, affecting the central nervous system, is very rare.
