A SIXTIES and seventies-themed disco has raised more than £1,800 to help those with cystic fibrosis.

The psychedelic fundraiser, held at Haverfordwest cricket club, was organised by Kate Carruthers, from Haverfordwest, because of her cousin’s son Louis.

Two-year-old Louis, from Johnston, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a baby.

Although doing well, day-to-day life can be hard for Louis, who needs daily physiotherapy and can only eat carefully-planned meals.

“If you met him you wouldn’t know he was poorly, it doesn’t phase him, but if he catches a cold it affects him so much more,” said Kate.

“He is striving, and a strong little boy, but it’s been a journey for all of us – when he was born we weren’t at all familiar with the ins and outs of cystic fibrosis and what that would mean.”

She said: “All the money raised will go to the Pembrokeshire branch of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, and then on to the main charity, whose main goal is to raise awareness.

“We want CF to stand for cure found not cystic fibrosis.”

The money was raised through ticket sales and a silent auction of a signed Welsh rugby top, which went to Ross Williams for £350.
