A family who lost their baby son to spinal muscular atrophy have raised £6,700 for the charity which supported them.

Rachel and James Luckett organised several events in aid of SMA Support UK in memory of their son Edward, who died last year aged 11 months.

The couple – who have a six-year-old daughter Maisie – joined forces with their friends Rob and Louisa Woodcock to organise a ladies’ pamper evening, sponsored silence, dog race night, Easter egg hunt, bake off, cake sale and teddy bear’s picnic over the course of a year.

The friends proudly presented the cheque to the charity’s community fundraiser Becky Bridgman at the James Figg Pub in Thame.
