A Kettering pub teamed up with a town family to help raise £700 for a heart unit at Leicester’s Glenfield Hospital.

Logan Blamire, eight, was treated at the unit as a youngster and eventually had a pacemaker fitted after open heart surgery several years ago.

On Sunday, Dianne Michael, landlady of The Leather Craftsman in St Peter’s Road, Kettering, hosted a sponsored head shave featuring her 13-year-old son Don Vieira, Logan’s granddad Mick Dainty and Logan himself.

She said: “Logan’s family come into the pub most weeks and Don has become friends with Logan so he wanted to do something to raise some money.

“It was a really good afternoon and lots of money was raised by everyone.”
