Kelly Iles is a friend of the family who set up the page on the Gofundme website.

Romeo's father Leandro said: "It's an amazing and thoughtful for Kelly to do this.

"She has been a great support for us."

Romeo was diagnosed with the tumour in June 2019.

While the youngster was receiving treatment Leandro had to give up his job at waste management contractor Veolia to be by his son’s side.

At the time people donated thousands of pounds to support the family.
