A family fun day was held at Christ the King Church in Kettering today (Saturday, July 27) organised by the mum of a youngster who spent two weeks in intensive care this year after she contracted meningitis.
Tot Gracie Hills, who is about 18 months old, had to have a number of her fingers amputated after she fell ill in February this year.
Determined to help the Meningitis Research Foundation, and the Leicester Children’s Intensive Care Unit, her mum Laura Brown hosted the family event today.
The family live in Deeble Road, Kettering.
There were a number of family-friendly activities on offer.
Laura said: “We had stalls, games, live music, bouncy castles, a barbecue and even more.
“The police came along and we also had a fire engine.”
