Helping a little boy with an aggressive form of brain cancer get to Disneyland Paris is the goal of a charity mini-golf day.

Visitors can play a round at Crabstix adventure golf in Evington Gardens, Cromer, in exchange for a donation, which will go towards a trip for five-year-old Bennedict 'Benny' Pitcher, from East Runton, to the famous attraction.

Benny's family were told the devastating news he had a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, a deadly and aggressive type of childhood brain cancer, in April.

Crabstix owner Victor Gray said: "From 10am to midday this Saturday [June 8] people can come down and play for a donation, I'm just going to put some buckets on the counter.

"We just want to raise some money so Benny can make it to Disneyland Paris, and we'll hopefully have a cake sale there as well."

Carbstix opened last month on the site of a former boating lake.

Anyone who can help with the fundraiser can call Mr Gray on 07976 399793.
