A FAMILY is mourning the loss of a little boy with a cheeky grin who inspired a Devizes supermarket to fundraising heights.

Rory Holloran died just weeks before his fifth birthday after battling leukaemia.

His family are asking people to line London Road on Wednesday (August 5) as his funeral procession is led by a Lamborghini.

His parents Matt and Hannah said: “It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved son, Rory.

“Rory passed away on July 20th 2020, at Charlton Farm Children’s Hospice in Bristol with his mum and dad by his side.

“He was a lover of the outdoors, supercars and many other things.

“Never has there been a braver stronger individual and yet the kindest soul anyone could meet. Rory touched so many people in his time and left irremovable memories with so many.

“He will be dearly and deeply missed by his family and everyone who knew him but will live strong in so many peoples memories.”

Rory was born on August 26th, 2015. He was a much loved son, brother, grandson, nephew and meant so much to many others.

His private funeral will be held on Wednesday but people are invited to gather along London Road at 12.15 as the cortege passes on its way to Semington Crematorium.

Donations are being collected in memory of Rory for Charlton Farm Bristol Children’s Hospice which gave him exceptional care and offered support to his family.

Back in January 2018 shoppers at Morrisons in Devizes helped raise more than £19,000 for CLIC Sargant after his grandmother Carol Lee told how he liked to put on his own supermarket uniform and join her at the tills.

The supermarket beat 693 other stores to top the chain’s fundraising league.

Rory’s family, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in June, 2017, was supported by the charity.
