A RYEDALE family entertainer is reuniting with his popular side-kick for a charity show to raise funds for the Freddie’s Fight Appeal.

Ryan Swain and Frank Lamingo were regular faces at Flamingo Land Resort and were the first presenters of the park’s popular Party In The Park concerts, which started in 2014.

The new show, which will be take place at the Milton Rooms in Malton on Sunday, June 2, will feature comedy, dancing, singing and lots of prize give-aways. It is aimed at children and families of all ages. Ryan and Frank Lamingo will be supported by singer Ionica Adrianna.

He said: “I am delighted to do my bit to help Freddie and his parents and I am looking forward to being reunited with Frank Lamingo for this fun show.”

Freddie Thompson, who lives in Ampleforth, with his parents, Emily and Philip and younger brother, Oscar, was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma in September.

With the support of family and friends they launched Freddie’s Appeal to raise £250,000 for a specific vaccination in America that may reduce chances of a relapse.

Gillian Thompson, from the appeal, said: “Freddie finished his radiotherapy last week, after 15 days of general anaesthetic and radiotherapy, it has taken its toll on him.

“He has been very unwell and lost quite a bit of weight.

“Freddie now has 10 days to get strong, ready for his immunotherapy. This therapy will help his immune system fight cancer and keep him well before the vaccinations.

“We are delighted to have now reached £175,000 in our fundraising efforts and are well on the way to achieving our £250,000 target.”

Other fundraising events include a Dona Bell Medium Night at The White Swan in Ampleforth on Friday, April 26, and Snainton and District YFC silent auction the same evening.

Details of upcoming events and how to donate can be found on the Freddie’s Fight facebook page.
