Villagers in Stoke Ferry are rallying around a family which has three children with a rare terminal disease.

Marilyn and David English have organised a number of events over the next few months to support Leah and Shaun Scott.

The couple’s three children, Paige, three, and twin boys Oscar and Phelix have all been diagnosed with incurable brain disorder Metachromatic Luekodystrophy. The family, who live in Eccles, near Attleborough, are raising money to fund a trip to Italy where the boys will undergo gene therapy. Mr and Mrs English, who are friends of the family, have organised a bingo in Stoke Ferry Village Hall on February 19, at 7.30pm. A race night has been organised for April 9 in the village hall.

The family is also running a raffle.
