They were inspired by an article in the Harborough Mail in October.

And now two local mums - Sarah Stanger and Sarah Welton - are organising a Christmas Craft and Gift Fayre for George Kirwan (pictured above with his mum Melanie).

The Fayre is on Friday, December 4, from 5.30pm to 8.30pm at the Jubilee Hall of the Congregational Church in Market Harborough.

As well as inspirational stalls with gifts made by mums, thereis a charity raffle.

George, who lives in the town, has the rare Dravet Syndrome and needs 24-hour care.
