Reece was taken to the QE for treatment but staff at the hospital couldn't save him.

Today (12th July) his friends will be taking part in a special fundraiser for Reece's family.

They want to help his loved ones cover the youngsters funeral costs.

So they're doing 17 laps around The Walks from 4pm to commemorate the 17 years of Reece's life.
