WRESTLERS rallied to rumble in Saltney for a fun-filled charity bash.
A bumper special wrestling tournament fundraiser was held in the Saltney Tavern to raise money for Runcorn youngster Callum Murray.
Callum, nine, has Arnold-Chiari malformation, a serious brain condition which has required multiple operations at Liverpool’s Alder Hey Hospital.
Complications have meant Callum has also had meningitis twice and the bacterial infection C-diff, and has been at risk of developing brain damage. He currently has to take 24 tablets a day to keep the condition in check.
He and his family, of Runcorn, now need to go to the Chiari Institute in New York for a life-changing operation, but require more than £10,000 to fund it.
Britannia Wrestling Promotions stepped in and held the fundraiser, which has raised more than £500 from the night itself.
Organiser Helen Sheridan said the evening had been enjoyable.
She said: “It went down very well. It was so long as there were so many wrestlers but all the people who attended enjoyed it.
“As well as the wrestling matches, we auctioned off some of the wrestlers so they could pose for a photograph and get a drink bought. That raised more than £100 on its own.”
Liz Dobson, supervisor at the Saltney Tavern, said: “The wrestling match went really well, the kids loved it.”
