He was seriously hurt in the crash, which was on the A47 on 25th August this year, while his parents Stephen and Samantha Durber were both killed. 

Louise told Heart thinking of her own daughter Danielle made her realise she needed to help.

She said: "I thought to myself if something happened to me or my partner, I would want someone to look after Danielle to say this is the right path to choose in life and there is help here for you. 

"It just seemed like I had to do it, I had to do something for Lucas."

There will be an auction and a raffle, live music from bands and a dj, a magician and a buffet.
