A FUNDRAISING night to help a four-year-old boy get the adaptations he needs at home has raised £6,300.

A Night for Ollie took place on Saturday, August 25, at the Paget Rooms in Penarth and was organised by Cogan Coronation Football Club.

The event was a black and white-themed night filled with cabaret, artists and comedians, as well as a raffle and an auction - which raised £6,310.

The money is going to help Ollie Meredith and his family, of Barry, get much-needed renovations to their home. Ollie has Pallister-Killian Mosaic Syndrome, which means he has seizures and low muscle tone. The renovations will help him around the house.

Speaking about the event, Ollie’s mum Sophie Meredith said: “The people of Cogan are real heroes. They have always been there to help us through some very tough times and made sure we have everything we need for Ollie, we really couldn’t have done everything we should been able to do in our house so far or have half the things we have much needed for Ollie without these people.”
