Red bus to take family to Little Liam’s Celebration of Life

Guests are requested to wear something yellow

An original red London bus will escort family as people gather to celebrate the ‘short but incredible life of our Little Liam’ at his Celebration of Life.

As previously reported, ‘loveable little boy’ Liam Andrew, six, died after a brave battle with an incurable and inoperable brain tumour earlier this month.

Liam’s family were looking at treatment options in May after the young boy was given just one year to live. He was diagnosed with a rare cancerous brain tumour known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).

On the Facebook page ‘Little Liams Trust – His fight against DIPG #love4littleliam’ people are being invited to join family and friends to celebrate Liam’s life on Friday, November 23.

He is described as the ‘Most caring and loveable little boy’.

The family will set off with Liam at 12.30pm in an original red London Bus. They will be followed by family and friends in convoy as he winds his way through Coddingtion and Newark towards Kelham Hall, where the Celebration of Life will be held at 1.30pm.

The Celebration of Life service is expected to last for one hour and will be followed by a private committal.

It is requested that guests wear something yellow on the day as that was Liam’s favourite colour.

Anyone wishing to join the convoy is more than welcome and details of the route will be published closer to the day.

The Facebook post continued: “You have all been part of this journey with us over the last 6-months and we would very much like you to join us when we say goodbye and give Liam the send off he deserves.”
