A crowd-funding website has been set up to raise £16 after a five-year-old was billed for failing to attend a friend's birthday party.
Alex Nash, from Cornwall, was invited to the party just before Christmas. An invoice for £15.95 was sent by his schoolfriend's mother, who said Alex's non-attendance left her out of pocket.
The website has raised £12 so far from four donors. Any money raised over £16 will be donated to the NSPCC.
A five-year-old boy was given an invoice and his parents threatened with court action after he missed a friend's birthday party.
Now the full Facebook conversation about the issue has emerged between the boy's mum Tanya and the birthday boy's mum Julie.

They've built a test rig at Torpoint to make sure this £25 million project works before the kit is fitted to the giant aircraft carrier, Queen Elizabeth. John Andrews has been to see it in action.
