A 10-YEAR-old boy with a broken leg raised more than £1,400 for the hospital that looked after him.

Harri Hughes, of Penrhyn Bay, carried out the sponsored 5k walk along Llandudno promenade for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool on Saturday, September 21.

He broke his leg at the start of the summer holidays, about 10 weeks ago.

After receiving such fantastic care and support from the consultants, doctors, nurses and staff at Alder Hey, the Ysgol Glanwydden pupil decided for his 10th birthday - on September 23 - he would ask for donations, rather than presents.

Harri presented a cheque to Alder Hey

Harri's father Stephen Hughes said: "It was glorious weather which meant the prom was full of people. The generosity shown was wonderful and we would like to thank everybody that donated on the day and to Harri’s JustGiving page.

"About 60 people - family and friends - turned up to support Harri.

"He was pleasantly surprised. He had such a serious injury for such a young lad, I think people were very keen to support him.

"I am really proud of him. He has stayed so positive throughout the whole thing. He is such a positive character, he has just carried on."

Stephen, who is married to Catherine and has daughter Elan, who attends Ysgol y Creuddyn, added: "He visited Alder Hey and he is ahead of schedule. He now has a cast that will be on a least a month or about six weeks.

"He is making good progress. There will be physiotherapy to follow."

Harri has now presented Alder Hey with a cheque for £1,413.

"It is a fantastic achievement," Stephen said.

"We would also like to thank all friends and family for their help and support.

"As a family we are extremely proud of Harri and his efforts."
