A bonfire lasting for 48 hours took place in Potton to raise money for a Potton boy who has liver cancer.

Over 100 doors, 40 pallets, a shed and two garden fences were part of the charity bonfire that took place in Potton. Evan Rees-Humphreys, 12, lit the bonfire last Friday at 5pm with family and friends joining him. The public event started Saturday with a barbecue, drinks, cakes and campfire songs.

Evan was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer aged eight. He underwent treatment and thought it had been cured but it has now re-appeared in his lungs.

It is believed the barbecue raised somewhere in the region of £1,000 with sponsorship money still coming in. If you want to donate visit Evan’s page on the Addenbrookes website. www.act4addenbrookes.org.uk/supporter/TeamEv
