Help break Liamís silence thumbnail

LITTLE Liam McCallum was discharged from hospital back in July following a road accident close to his Straidbilly home, but with every week that passes the ten-year-old is making steady progress.
January 10 is a date that will forever stick in the mind of the schoolboy's family, as in the words of Liam's mum, Natasha, "I thought I'd lost my wee boy forever."
She continued: "Our lives change completely. The following six weeks Liam spent fighting for his life in the ICU after being diagnosed with severe brain damage.
“He also had to have part of his skull removed to release pressure - that was the hardest 48 hours of our lives."
In a bid to rise funds to help break Liam's silence, friends who are part of the Giant's Causeway Protestant Boys, are planning to hold a parade in his honour.
The event will be held on Thursday August 24 2017 at 7.30pm and the bands will gather on the Castlecatt Road. All proceeds will go towards Liam's recovery and collection buckets will be on show on the night.
