A VIRTUAL race night has raised £1,700 for two Hampshire boys who suffer from a debilitating condition.

Southampton youngster Josh, 5, and Ethan Twine, 7, have Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a rare condition which causes muscles to weaken and waste over time, leading to increasing disability.

To raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, which funds research into the illness, parents Alex and Charmaine organised a race night at the Goals Soccer Centre on Millbrook Point Road, which included music and a barbecue.

The money raised by the evening will be used to fund research into treatment.

Charmaine said: “I want to say a big thanks to them, without them we would not have been able to raise so much money.”
