A BRAVE couple, who lost their three-month-old baby to a rare muscular condition, are backing a fundraising campaign set up in his memory.

John and Tracey Chad, of Parkside, Darlington, said they were honoured to be asked by Butterwick House Children’s Hospice to put son Matthew’s name to an appeal to raise £25,000.
