A couple from Banbury will host a fun day to raise funds for charity in memory of their son.

Gemma and Luke Froude have run Finnley’s Day for the past two years to support SSNAP (Support for Sick Newborns and their Parents) after their son Finnley tragically died aged four months in 2011.

The third annual event will take place tomorrow (Saturday) from 9am to 5pm.

Mrs Froude said: “We wanted to make this an occasion to help the charity because they do so much to help lots of people.

“It has been amazing to see the amount of support we have had from people in and around Banbury.”

There will be a tombola, bouncy castle, face painting, raffle and refreshments.

Businesses have already pledged their support to the event by donating a variety of prizes to be used in the raffle draw.

The couple raised about £6,000 last year, and altogether have raised more than £30,000 for SSNAP.

“We would love to beat last year’s total, and to have raised so much for the charity is amazing,” Mrs Froude said.

“Everyone is so keen to get 
involved and help us.

SSNAP is based at Oxford John Radcliffe’s Hospital and provides support and equipment for nurses in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
