A pub is holding a bumper Christmas fair to raise money to help a little boy to hear.

Danny Pickard, 2, was born with CHARGE syndrome, which has left him profoundly deaf.

His parents, Helen and Paul Pickard, from Burwell, are trying to raise £65,000 to fund an Auditory Brain Stem Implant - the only way Danny will ever be able to hear.

On Sunday, November 24, the Five Miles From Anywhere No Hurry Inn, in Upware, is holding a Christmas fair to support the campaign.

Running from 12-5pm, there will be a wide variety of festive stalls and refreshments.

Entry is free.
