A campaign to send a young father to America for a potentially life-saving cancer treatment has reached £100,000.
Fundraising for Matt's Fund is now just £50,000 off its target.
The father-of-one, who lives with his one-year-old son Freddie and his partner Hollie, is hoping to go to the USA for a state-of-the-art treatment which is unavailable on the NHS.
Hollie alone raised £2,500 through a 10,000 feet skydive, while friend Jason Batten rowed his kayak from Henley Bridge to Maidenhead Bridge.
Matt's individual fundraising page has raised around £90,000, with £10,000 from other donations.
A YouTube montage explains Matt's story, the campaign and shows some of the fundraising efforts so far.
A fundraiser in Ockwells Park has been organised for Sunday, August 3, with a mechanical bull, bouncy castles, live music and comedy and a raffle with a cash prize of £1,000.
