Welwyn Garden City’s Elliot Harridge celebrated his fourth birthday by raising more than £1,000 for his care and Lister Hospital Children’s Ward.
Elliot, who suffers from two rare chromosome disorders, was joined by around 300 people, including the fire brigade and police, at his fundraiser at the end of last month.
The event saw dozens of companies and individuals donate their time and resources to help Elliot enjoy the day and raise money.
Vikki Mason, Elliot's mum, said: "we do a big fundraiser every year and this was one was for Elliot and Lister Hospital children's ward.
"Elliot is very poorly and this year has had major brain surgery - it's our way of giving back and helping others in hospital.
