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.

You can find out more about the work CLIC Sargent do and how to donate here.
