Family and friends have praised the community spirit after funds were raised for a brave toddler.
After being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and given less than 40pc chance of survival, Jaymen Woolston faces a gruelling chemotherapy programme.
The one-year-old faces a lengthy stay at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge after a tumor was found on his stomach, which was later confirmed to be neuroblastoma.
With a Gofundme page set up by a family friend to encourage people to #PrayForJaymen and fund a dream trip to Disneyland, as well as cover the costs of daily trips between Lowestoft and Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for parents Jordan and Louise Woolston, a street collection was held in Lowestoft town centre on Saturday, February 2.
Organised by James Raven, who is a cousin of Jaymen's dad Jordan, Spiderman and a Minion character made appearances as the fundraising event was hailed a success.
