The mother of a little boy from the Selby area, who died from a rare cancer over a decade ago, has thanked people who continue to donate to his Christmas appeal.
Jamie Inglis was only seven when he lost his battle against neuroblastoma in 2013.
To the very end he was brave and cheerful and we lit up a room with his happy playful personality.
Jim Jams for Jamie is his family’s way of keeping his memory alive and helping others who have children in hospital over Christmas.
His mum, Vicky Inglis, told YorkMix Radio: “It really is heartwarming that, although some time has now passed, year on year Jamie’s army come together to help remember him and help others too.
“There are children in hospital throughout December and over Christmas time and the idea being to bring comfort to them, and to their parents and carers, with a brand new pair of pyjamas that are gift wrapped and then the hospital staff can decide how they give them out.
“They are often part of the Christmas stockings hung out on wards.
“We ask anybody that would like to take part to first share Jamie’s Facebook page. That’s where we put the updates about Jim Jams.
“Then people can donate by purchasing a brand new pair of pyjamas and they can just gift wrap with a label that says what age is and whether it’s for a boy or a girl or unisex and then take them to the drop off point.
“That is the office of The Selby Times (11 The Crescent Selby YO8 4PD Tel: 01757 291087) and then I will collect them.
Vicky said all the videos that exist of Jamie are of great importance and comfort ten years on.
“There are certain videos that just make me feel connected to Jamie, especially the one featured here, and it helps Poppy, his sister, too.
“You know, she was so very young, only 3-years-old when Jamie passed away and without those videos it would be really really hard for her to actually come to know who Jamie was.
“It is an important record of her big brother.”
