A fundraising event has raised £1,000 for a charity set up after a young boy’s death.

Lee Belgium battled leukaemia for years before passing away in April.

Mum Clare, originally from Thornbury, set up Lee Belgium Lasting Legacy after his death. The charity provides mementos and support for families who have lost children.

Held at The Live and Let Live pub in Frampton Cotterell on Saturday, the event included a barbecue, fancy dress and karaoke.

The event marked the reopening of the pub after a short closure to install a new kitchen.

Clare said she ‘really happy’ with how the first big fundraiser since Lee passed away went and is already looking ahead to the future.

“The day went so well. We all can’t wait to help children and families that need us.

“We are waiting on a charity number and should have it by the end of this year,” she said.
