A fundraising page which was set-up to help send a terminally-ill Worksop man on a dream holiday is gathering momentum.

Liam Buckley, 22, who attended Redlands Primary School and Outwood Academy Valley, was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer on 4th July 2014 and it has now spread to his liver and lungs.

The Sheffield Hallam University aerospace engineering graduate recently found out that the cancer is no longer responding to treatment.

Almost £2,000 has been raised since ‘Liam’s Dream Fund’ was launched by family friend Debbie Johnston-Sparkles two weeks ago.

The original target was £1,500, but more than 80 people have made generous donations to help Liam’s wish come true.

Elaine Haslehurst wrote on the page: “Liam you are amazing. Stay strong. Hope you have wonderful times making memories!!”

Lynda Pedley posted: “Your strength and courage are inspirational.”

Jane Pumfrey added: “If money could buy time, you deserve the biggest lottery win ever.”
