THE YOUNG boy who was killed in a tragic shopping accident is at the centre of a fundraising campaign this week.
Kaden Reddick died in a heartbreaking accident in Topshop earlier this year when a store display barrier fell on him.
In a bid to continue his legacy, his family have set a fundraising target of £1,000 for The Royal Brompton and Harefield Trust, which has cared for his younger sister since birth.
Kaden's two year-old sibling has congenital heart disease and requires continual care and procedures which is funded by the charity.
An auction, set up by his mother's cousin Nikki Irvine, will give bidders the chance to win Take That tickets and to enjoy hospitality at a Reading FC game.
She said: “Lisa and her partner were due to run their third marathon, unfortunately due to their circumstance that cannot. We thought it would be nice to fundraise on their behalf. The charity know the family and Kaden, we think it is poignant to do something for them on his behalf.
“We've been really lucky, help has come from all over.”
Ms Irvine revealed her joy after scores of small businesses nationwide came together to offer their support to the fundraising drive.
A post on the campaign's Facebook page reads: "My cousin and her family are devastated by the loss of their beautiful son and there are no words which could ever describe the pain they are suffering.
“This auction has been organised and set up as a legacy for Kaden who leaves behind older and younger siblings and step siblings.”
The auction launched yesterday (March 19) and will run until 8pm on March 26.
