Being a mascot would give Elliot Couchman the opportunity to shine.

Elliot’s eight-year-old brother Ben has been diagnosed with leukaemia, something which their mum Samantha says has made Elliot sacrifice a lot.

She said: “He has been extremely good-tempered about it all.

“Elliot has sacrificed so much already in his little life, I would love him to have the opportunity to shine and get the attention he so deserves.”

Samantha added that Elliot was a bone marrow match with Ben and would be having the operation this week.
