A fundraising night is being held to help support a family whose new-born baby passed away.

William Bennett died in hospital in Leeds on November 30, after being born with a hole in his heart and other conditions. Now friends of his parents David and Katherine have rallied round to support the family from Wallsend during the difficult time.

A fundraiser – organised by Easyriders North East Social Motorcycle Club – is taking place on Friday, December 18, at Preston Grange Community Centre, Newington Drive, North Shields, from 7pm.

Tickets cost £5, payable on the door, with all money going to the Bennett family. There will be a disco, DJ, singer, auction and a raffle.

Anyone unable to attend, can place a bid on the auction – which includes hotel breaks around the country, restaurant meals, and more – via
