South Yorkshire identical twins Levi and Lucas Atwal-Brice risk missing out on their dream holiday unless cash can be raised to buy them adaptable wheelchairs - in the next two weeks.

A Halloween-themed ball is being organised this weekend to help raise the money so the five-year-olds can go to Disneyland Paris.

Levi and Lucas, of Thurnscoe, Barnsley, were granted the dream holiday by the Starlight Foundation, a charity which grants the wishes of seriously ill children across the country.

The pair have severe autism and epilepsy and don’t have the specially adaptable chairs they need to go on the trip.

Unless the £4,000 needed to buy them is found within the next fortnight, the boys risk missing out on their dream visit to the Magic Kingdom.

As part of the effort to raise the ‘huge’ sum needed, their parents Michael and Paul are organising a charity auction and Halloween-themed Broomstick Ball at the Park Inn Hotel in Rotherham.

Special prizes have been donated to be auctioned off at the ball, which takes place on Saturday.

Prizes already donated include a framed England football shirt, autographed by David Beckham, a week in a Tenerife apartment and a pair of Vivienne Westwood shoes.

There will also be a pie and pea supper followed by a disco.

Dad Michael said: “Mickey Mouse is their favourite cartoon, so we know they’ll really enjoy it when they get there and see the characters.

“Starlight have organised a meet and greet with the Disney characters and breakfast with Mickey Mouse. They’ve also organised a lot of special things for the boys to do when they’re there, if we get the funding for the chairs in time.”

Park Inn general manager Kirsti Wilkinson said: “We hope that the evening will raise all or most of the £4,000 that is required and I’m asking any local companies which can assist to get in touch.”

n Tickets for the Broomstick Ball on Saturday are £5 from the Park Inn. Alternatively, you can contact from Michael or Paul on 07759246986.
