ASK and they will come - and they did come.

Clarence Valley residents came out in droves on Saturday to help raise money for James Drewett; the four-year-old Coutts Crossing boy suffering from a brain tumour.

Two separate fund- raisers were held on Saturday to raise money to help James' family - a fashion parade in Grafton and a family fun day at Coutts Crossing Pre- school.

Family fun day organiser Cory Fallon said $4300 was raised from the fun day and market alone.

She said that figure didn't include the money raised from preschool teacher Diane Sneezby having her head shaved.

"We had a really good roll up - and not just from Coutts; a lot of Grafton people came out," Ms Fallon said.

"It was a really nice day. Community spirit was really good."

James has endured 33 sessions of radiation therapy and this week begins four months of chemotherapy.
