A charity that supports children with Primary Bone Cancer and their families has received a funding boost from Copthorne Hotel Newcastle.

Henry Dancer Days was established by Jane Nattrass, who grew up in Morpeth, in memory of her 12-year-old son Henry – who died as a result of osteosarcoma.

Over the last three years, staff at the Copthorne have put together a whole host of fund-raising activities including guest raffles, staff baking days, car washes and raffles.

Earlier this month, the team was delighted to present Henry Dancer Days with a cheque for £3,000 that was raised by the hotel throughout 2016.

It has now brought in more than £10,000 in total for the charity and more activities are planned for 2017.
