Comedian Jason Manford has donated the takings of 5 shows in Berwick to a local couple, whose son Roman has an incurable, terminal disease.
The Bolton comedian turned up at the Berwick home of Stuart Greenlees and Rachael Laidlaw before one of his shows at The Maltings.
He met their 10 month old son Roman, who has recently been diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Alpers disease.
The couple want to make Roman's life as comfortable as possible, and are raising money to buy him specialist sensory equipment.
His parents have set up a website in his name to collect donations.
Since the comedian posted a link to it on his Facebook page, more than £6000 has been donated.
