Raising funds for Ritchie ...

A FUNDRAISING day to help a Fife boy with a rare condition is being held in Kirkcaldy’s Olympia Arcade this weekend.

Haru Holistic Therapy is hosting the event in aid of Ritchie Horrocks (3), who suffers from Achondraplasia or short limb dwarfism and is confined to a wheelchair.

The event will take place at Unit 7 in the arcade from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. on Saturday and will feature a range of holistic therapy tasters including aromatherapy, holistic massage and reflexology as well as Angel card readings and sales of modern and vintage jewellery, glass designs, body piercing, crafts and refreshments.

A percentage of the money raised from goods sold, and all the takings from the readings and treatments will go to the Ritchie Horrocks Fund to enable the youngster to lead a more independent life.

Jennifer Colville (43), of Haru Holistic Therapies, said: “I found out about Ritchie through a friend and decided to host this event to help raise money and awareness of his condition.”
