A FUNDRAISING event is being held for a 15-year-old Oldham school boy who needs 'life changing' surgery.

The afternoon of fun will be held at Parkview Pub in Blackley, on July 3 at 4pm.

Harlan needs corrective surgery that isn't available on the NHS as he has a condition which is causing his ribs to grow inwards.

This means he has breathing problems, pain and a deformed chest.

His mum Julie Repton Shepherd is trying to raise £25,000 so her son can have the surgery that he needs.

The event will be family friendly with a live band, face painting, bouncy castle and a performance by comedian Colin Manford.
