A local woman has organised a one mile lorry pull in Louth and a 23-mile sponsored walk to raise money for charity.

All funds raised will go to Reagan Jack Rainbows, a charity which was set up by Stockton-on-Tees woman Julie Young in memory of her 15-year-old son, who died earlier this year after living with complex needs following a cardiac arrest when he was just nine months old.

Kerstie Frearson heard about the charity when Julie and Reagan’s story appeared on Channel 4 documentary series Benefits Street.

Kerstie said: “Julie devoted 15 years to her poorly son Reagan and it really tugged on your heartstrings. Reagan was an amazing young man.”

The charity lorry pull takes place at 9.30am on Sunday, August 16, going from the King’s Head pub to Morrisons.

At around 10.30am, the 23-mile walk from Morrisons to Pleasure Island, Cleethorpes, will begin.

If you wish to take part in either fundraiser, contact Kerstie on 07801 094619.

Sponsorship forms can be collected from Kenwick News, Premier Extra in Park Avenue, Cobbles and Samuel’s.
