A teenager who is recovering from an attack of a rare nerve condition held a quiz night on Friday for the support group which helped him.

The event to raise money for the Guillian Barré Syndrome Support Group was organised by 19 year-old Alistair Summers of Newbury Crescent in Bourne, who was diagnosed with the condition in October last year.

Guillian-Barre Syndrome is a rare disorder in which the nerves in the arms and legs become inflamed and stop working.

Alistair said: “The support group has me tremendous support through a devastating and very frightening illness.”

Alistair spent more than four months in hospital during which he was visited by fellow sufferer Jon Shelton who was put in touch by the Guillian-Barre Syndrom Support Group.

The group has also supported the family.

More than 65 people attended the quiz night held at The Nags Head and raised about £500 pounds for the charity.

His parents, Bryan, 79, and Jacky, 59, thanked everyone for attending and making the evening such a success, including all those who donated raffle prizes, quiz master Kevan Bailey and score keeper Angela Bailey

The winning team, Wit’s End, took home the £150 pounds cash prize donated by Bryan and Jacky.
