A kindhearted young boy has organised a football event to raise money for the Magical Millie fund.

Jack Lucas, 7, is the cousin of Millie Brown, 4, who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumour in April and could only have ten months to a year to live.

Jack, who attends Richard de Clare school, Parsonage Street, approached the managers of the Halstead under 7s football team, for which he plays, to organise a charity football match to raise money for Millie to spend on a day out.
