A campaign to pay for possible life saving treatment for a five-year-old boy has raised more than £20,000.

Rione Holder, of Harrow Weald, was diagnosed with diagnosed with Wilm’s disease, a form of kidney cancer, which has progressed to his lungs.

Last week friends and neighbours started a campaign to raise £10,000 to secure treatment at a hospital in Frankfurt Germany, which his family have been told could be his last chance.

He was treated at the Royal Marsden and Great Ormond Street hospitals but earlier this month his family were been told there is nothing more which can be done and he may only have weeks to live.

Since Harrow Times featured the story on Wednesday last week contributions to the campaign have flooded in, with one anonymous donor giving £1,000.
