Louise Kerry, aged 32, and Karl Willis, 24, of Eaton Square in Barnburgh, must raise as much money as they can during the next two weeks for the Cash For Kids charity as part of a Hallam FM competition. If they raise more money than the other competing couples, they will win a dream wedding.

Louise and Karl, parents of twin baby daughters, Heidi and Freya, said they would be ‘pulling out all the stops’ to raise vital funds and win the £26,000 top prize, as otherwise they would not be able to afford to get married.

Louise added: “The wedding will be at Owston Hall and everything will be paid for. We are desperate to win.

“So far we have arranged a charity football match, a toddle waddle in Cusworth and a big charity night in Ravenfield near Rotherham with a top prize of seven nights in Portugal for two.”
