CAROL singers and visitors to a popular South West attraction have helped to raise £600 for the Harvey Hext Appeal.

Puxton Park outside Weston-super-Mare held a charity carol service evening to mark the arrival of Father Christmas to his annual grotto.

The service included performances from Castle Batch Primary School and a collection on the night held for the Harvey Hext Appeal, which Puxton continues to support.

Harvey Hext Appeal aims to raise funds for six-year-old twin boy Harvey, which will allow him to access potentially lifesaving treatment not available on the NHS.

Harvey, of Winford, has Downs Syndrome like his twin brother and was diagnosed in 2010 with stage four Neuroblastoma- a very aggressive childhood cancer.

He has undergone chemotherapy and Meta-Iodo-Benzyl-Guanidine (MIBG) therapy to treat the cancer, as well as a 14-hour operation to remove a stomach tumour.

Treatments in the UK for Neuroblastoma are limited but overseas treatments appear to have success, and it is hoped Harvey will receive treatment in Germany or the USA, once a £300,000 target has been raised.

Head of Park, Susie Richards, said: "Following our charity concert, Puxton's Alistair Mead was pleased to hand a £600 cheque to Sarah Hext of the Harvey Hext Appeal.

"Harvey and twin Brother Spencer, Sister Olivia and Dad Dave were present for the cheque presentation before taking to the air in search of Santa, as Puxton's guest on the search for Santa flight on Saturday along with Ryan Air's competition winners."
