The money needed to send seven-year-old Alex Novakovic to America for life-saving cancer therapy has been raised.

And in fitting style it was Bedgrove Infant School - Alex attends the neighbouring primary school - which contributed a massive £16,816 to take the total well over the final £255,500 target.

Alex and his mother Jasmin could now travel to America as early as this weekend to begin the proton-beam therapy on a brain tumour in Boston.

Alex’s uncle Daniel O’Brien said on Facebook: “105% you are over the Target!!!! Thank you, Thank you Thank you. The last donation was from Bedgrove Infant School for £16,816.05. I’m floored at that. But equally as grateful to each and everyone of you for what you have done for Alexander. He’s going! xxxxxxxx.”

Bedgrove raised the money through a variety of community events and all across Aylesbury Vale businesses and people have being doing their bit to help Alex.

From a man spending 24 hours in a tree to schools having a wear a funny hat day, everyone has got involved.

The family had just over a week to raise the money after finding out a slot was available for Alex at the Massachusetts General Hospital at the end of the month.
