TINY orange knitted hearts are being taken all over the world to remember a much loved schoolboy.

The handmade mementoes were among countless items sold at a Christmas fair in honour of Cason Hallwood, 12, known fondly as 'Ginge' because of his red hair.

Mum-of-four Louise hosted the festive event at Wharton Library on Thursday for her son, who had a peanut allergy and died suddenly after accidentally eating a peanut glaze on his Christmas dinner.

The 39-year-old is delighted as the one day bumper sale made £1,100 for the Anaphylaxis Campaign, which raises awareness of people at risk from severe allergic reactions.

"To raise so much in such a short time, in cold weather on a week day is brilliant.

An unexpected gift almost moved Louise to tears.

"A woman approached me and said that her mum had passed away last year and left her some money to give to a charity," she said.

"She handed me £100. It was so emotional. She said she had two boys and couldn't imagine what I was going through.

"I didn't get her name but it was such a lovely gesture."

Best friend Joyce Whalley is providing all the wool and giving up her time to knit little hearts to celebrate Cason's life.

"We want people to take Cason's heart all over the world when they go on holiday," said Louse. "These orange hearts have already been to Dubai, Spain and all over the UK."

Louise launched her fundraising campaign with a tough keep fit challenge and has now raised more than £8,000 for the charity from table top sales and a sponsored walk.

"I'd love to get to £10,000," said Louise. "High Street School and Winsford Academy are donating money from their Christmas jumper days so we may just make it."
