WHEN a local chippy heard about a regular customer's heartbreaking battle with IVF, they just had to help.

Laura Pye, 31, is unable to get pregnant naturally after life-saving chemotherapy. She and husband Chris are trying to raise £6,000 for their sixth attempt at IVF.

Owner of Laki's Fish Bar, Georgina Ellison, 32, is now 25 weeks pregnant after conceiving naturally just weeks before she was due to have IVF.

She said she understands their heartbreak and thinks people should be aware how hard it is for some couples to conceive.

"My heart just goes out to them, and when I hear their story it brings everything back to me." Georgina added.

Georgina is opening up this Sunday and all money made will go to the couple.
