“Our beautiful little boys funeral will be held on Wednesday, February 27. He was 3-years-old and LOVED fire engines,” Chrissie said. 

“We are searching for anyone who may be able to help us with arranging for a fire engine to lead the funeral cars from our home in Arbourthorne (@ 12pm) to Cemetery Road Baptist Church in Sharrow where the service will be held.

“We are searching for anyone at all who may be able to help point us in the right direction.

“I just want to give my baby the best. It’s the last thing we can physically do for him and we know sometimes things like this aren’t always possible, but we can at least try.”

Chrissie said anyone available to help can contact her on Facebook.
