East Norfolk Brownies are holding a summer fair this Sunday to raise money for their pack and a little boy fighting serious illness.
The 2nd Bradwell Brownies will be at the Seagulls Children's Centre in Gorleston from 10am to 3pm with stalls, games, music, a bouncy castle and more. Pack leader Donna Nunley said the money raised on the day will not only help the 16-strong Brownie troupe pay for activities and, hopefully, a trip to Disneyland Paris, it will support 15-week-old Max Williams, a local boy who has been born with a liver problem.
Max has biliary atresia - a condition where bile cannot be removed and starts to poison the liver, leading to organ failure if untreated.
His mum, Donna Cooke, said it had been a rollercoaster since he was diagnosed at six weeks old, but they are taking it 'one day at a time'.
'He is doing well at the moment; he is at home,' said Ms Cooke.

'He's such a smiley, happy baby which almost makes it worse because sometimes you can't tell that he's ill.'
Baby Max is on medication and requries regular check ups at Kings Hospital, London, including blood tests and monortiring. He has already undergone major surgery and may need more in the future.
