Lee's charity set to launch
TWO fundraising events are taking place in memory of eight-year old Lee Belgium, who died in April after battling leukaemia for the third time.
His family, who raised nearly £80,000 earlier this year in the hope of taking him abroad for treatment, are setting up a charity called “Lee Belgium Lasting Legacy”, to help other families who have lost a child and to keep Lee’s name alive.
The first fundraising event is taking place on Thursday August 29 at The Park Centre in Kingswood from 1–3pm. .
In addition, a fundraising campaign by Lee’s former school, Park Primary in Kingswood, have raised the £2500 needed to buy a Captain America superhero bench in memory of Lee, who was a superhero fan.
