A seven-year-old who won four gold medals at an international athletics competition for people with physical disabilities needs sponsors so he can compete again.

Harvey Parry, of Winchmore Hill, is looking to raise £4,560 so he can take part in the 2013 Endeavour Games, in Oklahoma, USA.

He lost both his legs and three and a half fingers on his right hand after he caught a deadly strain of the meningitis virus when he was 15 months old.

His mother, Carol Parry, said because she had a heart attack last year she has not been able to do as much fundraising.

She said: “Harvey is Enfield’s champion and I know that when he wins he makes us all proud.

“He will be the only child representing the UK at the games and it’s all thanks to very generous people in the borough.

“My son is a fantastic runner, he’s got the stuff to compete in the Paralympics and it really would mean the world to him if he got to go.”

The seven-year-old has been running for the past five and half years and will be racing in the 200m, 100m, 60m and 20m races at the games between June 6 and 9.

Sponsorships will go towards paying for food, travel and accommodation while in America.

It will also pay for Harvey to attend CampNoLimits, in Missouri, which is a non-profit organisation for children with limb loss and provides education, mentorship, and support.

Mrs Parry and her son have enough to fly to America on Monday and said they will be ok provided the money keeps coming in while they are out there.

She added that no amount of is too small and it is all greatly appreciated.
