Video of Lewis Mighty Lantern Release in Mackworth on Thursday May 16th 2013

Feel free to link/embed this video on Facebook,Twitter etc etc.
Around 300 people turned out to remember the life of Lewis Mighty, who sadly lost his fight with cancer last year at the age of seven. Family friend Chelsea Garratt organised the event which took place on Hyde Park Green in Mackworth, Derby, Derbyshire, UK.

If you were unable to attend hopefully my video will give you an idea of what it was like.

As you can see it was a bit windy so people had a few problems lighting the lanterns.

His family had set up The Lewis Mighty Fund to help fund a £300,000 course of treatment only available in America.

After his death, the fund was retained to keep raising money for children with cancer at Nottingham Children's Hospital, which Lewis attended, and across the East Midlands.

James Morrison will be performing to raise cash for the fund at Delapre Park, Northampton, on July 21.
