Fundraiser For 6 Year Old Kidney Transplant Patient


9:14am 5th April 2014

The granddad of a 6-year-old boy from Weymouth who's been in and out of hospital since the day he was born, is putting on a special live music fundraiser tonight.

Max Price has now had two kidney transplants.

His Grandad Paul Allington puts on an annual event each year to help the family pay for his medical costs.

Tonight's event is being held at Portland Conservative Club at features live music from local band Hustle and the Steve Williams Roadshow.

Paul says Max is a tough little boy.

"He's had 40 operations.  He was born with kidney renal failure and has been having treatment ever since.  But he's always got a smile on his face and is very cheerful."

"The transport costs over the years [to hospital] are huge and by people coming along tonight it will make my daughter's life, who is Max's mum that much easier."

Tickets cost £10 and are available from Paul on 01305 860 041.
