Fundraising Challenge to Help Cancer Battle Teenager

(Updated 9:06am 5th September 2013)
A Cornish community is rallying around to support a teenager - battling cancer.
Matt Dalley from Wadebridge is having treatment up country after being diagnosed a month ago.
Now locals are raising money for CLIC Sargent - the charity that runs the specialist centre where the nineteen year old's staying.
Tanya works with Matt at the local social club. She said: "He's a fit young lad - always out on his BMXs. Just a genuinely lovely guy.
"He's very positive. He's determined to fight this - and we all know he will. He's got a lot of support behind him.
"You just never know what's round the corner. It could happen to any of us - or any of our children.
"Just as much money as we can raise for the cause is brilliant really."
Thanks to a series of events Team Dalley have already smashed their fundraising target - but they want to go further.
