E. Richards, who started the online JustGiving appeal said on the page:
“We are raising money for 8 year old Louis Stevenson who is from Torquay. Louis has a tumour in his head and spine which has been removed by some amazing doctors, unfortunately what is left is stage 4 cancer. Louis is now at Bristol Children’s Hospital (ward 38) having treatment, normally he attends Sherwell Valley Primary School school in Torquay (along with his 6 year old sister), his favourite things are Spiderman, Paw Patrol and Teddies from Build a Bear, his favourite TV show’s are X Factor and I’m Celeb.

“Anything you lovely people could donate would be fabulous, Louis and his family are normal everyday people from Torquay and now need all the help we can give them. Thank you all in anticipation,”

After hearing Louis is a fan of Paw Patrol, local business Riviera Mascots & Bounce Torbay will be travelling up to Bristol tomorrow with Viking Warriors to surprise  Louis with a visit from Paw patrol.
