The Apple Tree pub, in Crawley, will be holding a family fun day to raise money for a local lad who had his legs amputated.

Two regulars at the pub, in West Green Drive, will be undergoing a beard and chest wax while others enjoy less painful pursuits such as music, a barbecue, magicians and a bouncy castle.

The fun day will be held on Saturday (August 29) and will also include a car wash and a performance from Brogue Irish Folk.

All money raised will go to the Ryan Brand Foundation, which was launched to buy prosthetic limbs after the then 14-year-old, who was born with spina bifida, had to have both his legs amputated.

The fun will start at 2pm and will run all afternoon. If the weather is bad, the event will be held indoors.
