STAFF at Sidmouth’s Co-operative store hope a raffle can boost a charity that wants to help a four-year-old with a rare illness that stops him from playing with other youngsters.

A hamper filled with £55 of fair trade goods and a £10 voucher are up for grabs at the High Street outlet.

The draw will take place on Saturday, September 29.

Cash will go to a Precious Kids appeal to help a tot called Harry who suffers from nephropathic cystinosis – a condition which affects the kidneys, eyes and delayed growth and stops him from interacting with others.

The cause wants to convert part of Harry’s garden into a specialist play area.
