FUNDRAISERS who fought tirelessly to raise money for brave tot Amelia-Mae Davies' cancer treatment will say goodbye to her with a special balloon release.

The two-year-old sadly lost her battle with neuroblastoma last weekend after her family, friends and the community had thrown themselves into trying to raise the £250,000 for treatment in America.

However 'Amelia’s Army' vowed to continue raising awareness of the rare disease and this weekend they will fill the sky with pink balloons aboard the Mersey ferry.

The event, which is the first to be held in aid of the newly-formed Amelia-Mae Neuroblastoma Foundation, will see the toddler’s supporters come together in her memory.

And Sarah Williams, who has helped to organise the balloon release, said anyone who was touched by Amelia-Mae’s story is welcome to attend.

She said: "Unfortunately I never had the chance to meet little Amelia but I have been involved in the Facebook fundraising group and have followed her story.

"I initially donated to her fund a few months ago but I couldn’t leave it at that and wanted to do more so I started to gather donations for her and spread the word.

"We were all absolutely devastated when we heard she had passed away as we had taken her to our hearts despite some of us never meeting her or even each other.

"We want this event to be a way of saying goodbye and raising money for the Foundation so other children don’t have to suffer like Amelia did."

Amelia-Mae’s Fundraising Friends are meeting at Liverpool ferry terminal between 5.30pm – 5.45pm tomorrow (Saturday) for the 6pm cruise.

Attendees are asked to bring a £5 donation for the Foundation and their own balloon to release.
