A BUCKLEY woman was so touched after reading the story of Bagillt youngster Harley Noble in the Chronicle she has organised a fundraising event in his honour.
Gill Henry said she felt ‘compelled to do something’ after she read about four-year-old Harley, who has schizencephaly, a rare and severe form of cerebral palsy which has left him in a wheelchair and unable to walk or talk.
She decided to do her bit to help parents Jonathan Noble and Christina Lace raise enough money for the vital house extension and improvements they need and has organised a paranormal evening at the Daniel Owen Centre, Mold.
“I wanted to do something to help the family and thought about what I could do that was a bit different,” said Gill.
“I have always had an interest in events on the fringe of society and in paranormal investigations.”
She has invited Nick Pope, who used to work for the Ministry of Defence (MOD) researching and investigating reports of UFO sightings and has appeared on shows including This Morning and Newsnight, along with Richard Holland, editor of the Paranormal magazine and author of books including Supernatural Clwyd, to talk at the event.
Gill said: “I saw Nick talk at a conference last year and he was absolutely fascinating, it was a real eye-opener.
“There were quite a number of suspected UFO sightings in Flintshire last year so I think it’s something people will be interested in.”
An Evening with Nick Pope will be held on Thursday, March 25, at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £12, which includes a free raffle, and can be booked by calling Gill on 01244 544472.
