A fund-raising bid launched by a family to help find a cure for their teenage son who suffers with a rare kidney disease has so far hit over £3,000.

Family and friends of Jonothon Dunn, 13, from Claughton on Brock have organised a number of events to raise money for Kidney Research UK.

Garstang Community Academy pupil Jonothon was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy in 2013.

A recent prosecco and fashion show hosted by his mum Susan and friend Catherine Towers raised £1,770.

Susan said: “A massive thank you to all those who came and donated and to Frank and Catherine Towers who donated a weekend break in a mega pod at Upwood Holiday Park Haworth that was auction last week for £315 bought by Steve Walton.”

Susan, husband Steven, Jonothon and brothers Lawson 11 and Nathan 10 have also completed the seven-mile Glasgow Bridges walk, giving the fund a £820 boost.

Another £410.50 has been donated by friends Ian Franks and Anthony Hale for a 225mile cycle challenge.

And next month Steven, alongside Joanne and Catherine will take on a sponsored climb up Ben Nevis.
