Liam Buckley, 23, was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer in 2014.

Since then, people from all over the country have donated money to ‘Liam’s Dream Fund’ - a fundraising page set-up by Debbie Johnston-Sparkles to help make Liam’s last wish of visiting the seaside with his family come true.

Liam and his family recently visited Bridlington to spend some quality time together, after more than £3,000 was donated.

Sadly, the Manchester United football supporter and F1 fanatic is now back in Weston Park Hospital.

Updating the Go Fund Me page, Debbie wrote: “It is heartbreaking for me to be updating Liam’s page with such sad news, Liam at this time is gravely ill in Weston Park Hospital, his family are taking each day/hour at a time now.

“Please can you all keep Liam and his family in your hearts and prayers and send them all the love and support you can.

“Myself and Liam’s family would like to say a massive thank you to everybody that has shared Liam’s page and donated to his dream fund.

Debbie added: “Because all of your kindness and generosity Liam and his family have been able to make some special magical memories during such a tragic, sad time.

“Your donations made Liam’s wish possible - the whole family spent some much needed quality time together in Bridlington just before Liam went into hospital.

“The whole family have been overwhelmed by all your kindness and support, it means more than you could ever imagine to them.

“Please keep sharing and supporting.

“We are all thinking of you everyday, sending all our love and prayers to you all xxxxxxxxxxxx.”
