Second Paw Patrol convoy for Heysham explosion toddler victim
A second Paw Patrol convoy for Heysham explosion victim George Hinds will take place along Morecambe promenade in July.
Organisers of last year’s Paw Patrol convoy for George Hinds have announced that the convoy will run again on Saturday, July 9 to honour his memory.
Any money raised will be donated to George’s family towards his memorial garden.
Jenna McBride said on Facebook: “The idea is to provide entertainment and fun for those on the promenade watching the convoy and to help raise money for this beautiful boy.

"Last year I managed to raise over £300 and I'd like to help again.
"I’m asking for donations to help me do this, we are needing teddies to hand out to children free of charge to hold high for George whilst the convoy comes past.
"Anything Paw Patrol, buckets and spades, donation buckets, unwanted unused balloons, letter banners and (decorating tables ) and any musical instruments that can be used by children are needed.
"We are planning cake sales and fresh drinks, pick and mixes for sale, adult raffles and children's raffles and prizes, balloons, decorations, possibly a Paw Patrol Chase character walking up the promenade with a donation bucket, sand castle prizes on the beach, free teddies, fancy dress and dancing and simply just a friendly fun day.
"And of course we need vehicles to join the convoy so if any cars are interested in joining in, decorating your car and representing George Hinds please get in touch.
"Any ideas or help or donations please message me and I'll get back to you soon as I can, thank you in advance your help is appreciated.”
Another organiser said: “Let's make the convoy bigger and better and keep the memories of George Arthur Hinds living long!”
The vehicles were decorated with Paw Patrol characters which were George's favourite, some had soft toys and stickers, other's simply 'RIP George' in green letters.
A charity night was held at Lancaster Grand theatre earlier this year to raise money for George Hinds memorial garden.
