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.
Michael Clarke, from the Felixstowe Lodge said: "We asked other lodges to contribute. Everything we do is for charity and we pick out good causes."
The money is contributed by members of individual lodges from their own pockets.

Mr Clarke added: "I saw in the paper about him and his mum. I lost my first wife through cancer and it is near to my heart – if we can't help him who can we help?
"Since we started we have raised nearly £800 for Jay."
