A PAIR of kind-hearted men from the Bradford district helped give a terminally ill three-year-old boy an early Christmas present by organising a party for him.

Alex Wilson, of Cleckheaton and Josh Brown, of Heckmondwike, helped organise Festive celebrations for Ellis Price, three, who has a terminal brain tumour.

Ellis's parents, Ashley Price and Laura Pearman, were told two months ago by doctors that the youngster has between two to six months to live.

Mr Wilson, 24, is friends with Laura through social media and initially used his own profile on social media to collect Christmas cards and raise funds to pay for presents for Ellis, of Wakefield, as the community came together. They also plan to spend some of the cash raised on presents for Ellis' family members. 

A large bike convoy, with many dressed in Santa costumes, attended the festive-themed event, held on Tuesday.

Mr Wilson, who competes as a bare knuckle fighter, said: "We got Ellis a lot of presents through the money raised. We have got a couple of thousands pounds from people online.

"We must have spent about £400 in the Disney Store on presents for Ellis. We got him some Leeds United and superheroes stuff too. 

"There were four of us that dressed up for Ellis' party.

"We all went to Ellis' house first and Santa did his thing.

"It was a good atmosphere at his Christmas party. We did not know what to expect when we got there. We didn't know what reaction to expect from Ellis.

"Ellis had a little smile on his face. He has a cheeky way about him.

"Despite what's going on, he has a great sense of humour."

Meanwhile, Ashley, says Ellis really enjoyed the party.

He said: "Ellis absolutely love it. He got so many gifts and presents.

"He is not going to be here for Christmas.

"We got told two months ago that he only had two to six months with us. It's going to be less than six months."
