More than £11,000 has been raised in less than a week to fund a bionic leg for a 20 year-old trainee electrician who lost a limb to cancer.
Surgeons amputated Billy Lee’s right leg during an operation to remove a tumour – described as the size of a small baked bean can.
His family now hope to allow him a normal life by raising £70,000 for a specialist prosthetic limb.
Three more events have been organised for the “Billy’s back on my own 2 feet fund” in Wisbech St Mary.
On February 28, a giant jumble sale will take place at Wisbech St Mary Primary School. There will be lots of clothing, toys bric-a-brac, bedding and more.
