BRAVE Charlie Curtis joined 6,000 others for a charity fun run to raise cash for Great Ormond Street Hospital, where he is being treated for a rare condition.

Charlie, six, has been a patient at the hospital since birth as he suffers from Goldenhar syndrome, a rare congenital defect which results in incomplete development of the ear, nose, soft palate and lip.

Mum Ellie, dad Giles, ten-year-old brother Hayden and sister Lucy, three, were joined by a host of famous faces for the run, the biggest Race for the Kids yet.

Giles said: “This is our way to say thank you to the hospital.”

The family has raised more than £1,400 for the hospital so far.
