A fundraising day for a three-year-old boy from Cwmbran who is having chemotherapy raised over £2,000 today. Court Farm and Oakfield Community Centre was packed with supporters of the Charlie Bear Fund- named after Charlie Daniels who has Burkitt Lymphoma.

Several men had their legs waxed to raise money. Two men had their moustaches shaved off. Zoey Adu had her head shaved and donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that makes real hair wigs for children.
Zoe, Charlie’s mum, said: “My close friends organised this fundraiser to raise money and awareness, bringing the community together, just bringing some positivity to this really crappy situation.”
