Minnie Mouse was among the guests as people rallied round to support a special fundraising event in Bridge of Weir.

Non-stop fun was on offer at The Gryffe Inn, where thousands of pounds were coined in for three-year-old Corey Fox, who is bravely battling a birth defect known as microcephaly.

The condition means he has a smaller head and brain than the average child his age, which has left him unable to walk, talk or sit up unaided.

Corey also suffers from epilepsy, having to endure around 20 seizures daily, and Global Development Delay, which means he will develop slower than other kids.

But his quality of life is set to dramatically improve after more than £2,000 was raised by those who went along to Saturday’s event.

The money will go towards buying equipment to aid Corey’s mobility.

Hundreds of people enjoyed dressing up, face painting, a bouncy castle, a variety of stalls and raffles.

Brave volunteers also took part in a sponsored leg-waxing, with a fun run bringing in even more cash.

Corey’s parents – James Fox and Sarah Milligan – are full of praise for all those involved.

James said: “We had an amazing day and we are so overwhelmed by the support.

“We can’t thank everyone enough and we hope they all had a great day.

“Corey and his sister Orla were worn out and went straight to bed afterwards.”

Sarah added: “We really can’t believe the amount that was raised. It’s incredible.”
