NEARLY £800 has been raised for the Jay Magill Fund by members of the Royal Antediluvian Order of the Buffaloes.
The fund was set up to raise money for the Chantry youngster who has been battling cancer.
His mother Davina, from Waller's Grove on Chantry, has leukaemia and the pair are hoping to raise enough money to go a family holiday to America.
Drawn to the plight by the Evening Star, the Felixstowe lodge of the Buffaloes decided to rally other East Anglian groups together to raise cash.

The money is contributed by members of individual lodges from their own pockets.
