THE mum of a disabled child has organised a charity concert to help raise funds for the cause that has helped them.

Alfie Goodman, eight, was born prematurely and suffers with cerebral palsy, autism, epilepsy and lung disease.

Ever since he was little Daventry charity Pete Spencer’s Helping Hands Memorial Fund has helped Alfie with equipment and support.

And now his mum Sarah-Jayne Goodman has decided it’s time to ‘give something back’.

The concert will be held at the Queen of Hearts pub in Wimborne Place on Saturday, June 2.

Entry is free and there will be buckets going around for people to give a contribution.

Mrs Goodman, from Lang Farm, said: “Helping Hands has done so much for Alfie and for other children who I know in the Daventry area.

“I just decided I wanted to give something back because it’s a wonderful cause that does so much good.

“The more money we can raise the better. It would be tough to say a target but if we can raise enough for Helping Hands to help it carry on its work then it will be brilliant.

“We are also hoping companies in Daevntry will come forward and donate some auction prizes for the night.”

Mrs Goodman will be singing at the event along with Emma Saunders and Fiona McCance.

She added: “Alfie is doing brilliantly and proving everybody wrong.

“The world is a better place with him in it.

“It’s been a rocky road but we’ve got this far.

“He’s still going to mainstream school at Ashby Fields and I’m very proud of him.”
