A STAR-studded event featuring footballing legends has raised hundreds of pounds for a charity fund in memory of a toddler.

The Amelia-Mae Foundation held a night with ex-Everton and Wales goalkeeper Neville Southall and his former Everton team-mate Ian Snodin at Dukes Bar Grill restaurant in Queensferry.

The event helped raise more than £250 for the foundation, in memory of Amelia-Mae Davies, who lost her battle with neuroblastoma last July, aged two.

The youngster, from Garden City, Sealand, fought the form of childhood cancer bravely. Her battle attracted the attention of a high-profile stars, including Southall.

Amelia-Mae’s parents Stewart and Angela attended the event with members of the foundation’s committee.

Becky Evans, a committee member, said: “Raising as much as we can for the foundation is good news.

“It was interesting for Neville Southall and Ian Snodin to hear about the work of the foundation and what it does for families. Most importantly, we raised more awareness of neuroblastoma.”

The charity is trying to turn the region purple for national neuroblastoma awareness day tomorrow. A children’s party is being held at the Queensferry Hotel pub on Welsh Road from 3pm to 7pm with games and entertainment for youngsters.

Charity headshaves will take place for the foundation.

Those who would like to take part in turning the region purple should email Sarah Parks for a fundraising pack at
