Published by The Stray FM News Team at 1:35pm 14th June 2018.

Classmates will join a Harrogate schoolboy today as he remembers his dad on what would have been his 42nd birthday.

Fraser, 11, wants to raise the equivalent cost of a night at Saint Michael's Hospice, where his father Gary spent nearly a month after contracting appendix cancer.

The Richard Taylor School pupil has organised a sponsored fun run this afternoon.

Fraser got to spend a night with his dad at the Hospice before he died last year.

His mum Fiona Tunstall said: "His aim orginally was to raise £500 as that is what it costs for night a Saint Michael's Hospice and Gary was there for nearly a month.

Fraser has already beaten his target, raising £800.
