TOM Gray has had cancer of the throat and the pancreas but he does not let illness prevent him from helping others.

For 20 years, he has been running a weekly social event that raises money to buy computers for children with cerebral palsy.

Tom’s Sunday Club is held at the Royal British Legion club in Staple Hill and attracts people from across Bristol who enjoy singing and dancing.

Tom, 75, who lives in St George, said: “I didn’t want to feel sorry for myself so I decided to do this.”

The first lad to receive a computer is now 29 and the latest to receive help from the club is six-year-old Jaye Cook, from Kingswood.

Tom got to hear how firefighters were backing the family’s campaign to raise money for an operation to help Jaye walk unaided so he organised auctions and collections and was able to hand over £1,000 to Jaye’s parents, Martin and Melanie.
