A Norwich couple who have raised more than £40,000 in memory of their little boy are looking to provide a further boost to help other families.

Claire and Simon Nicholl, from Eaton, suffered heartbreak when their son Harrison Alexander Nicholl died four days after his birth in 2010.

During his all-too-short life, Harrison was cared for in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Since then, his parents have made it their mission to keep their son's legacy alive and raise money for the hospital and East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

The latest event is a black tie charity ball, at the Top of the Terrace at Norwich City Football Club's Carrow Road stadium, at 7.30pm tomorrow. A few tickets, priced at £25, will be available on the door.
