Blyth schoolboy helps spread Christmas cheer
A youngster from Northumberland is trying to collect as many donations of toys as possible to help bring a smile to the faces of children at Newcastle's RVI.
Cory Davison, from Blyth, is recovering from an aggressive brain tumour. But despite his own health problems he's desperate to help other children in hospital at this time of year.
He will visit there on Christmas morning, not opening his own presents until he gets back.
It's the second time that Cory has made Christmas morning trip. Today he was at John Lewis Store in Newcastle to collect another batch of donations.
