MARINERS fan Declan Gunn, who is about to celebrate his 10th birthday against all the odds, was our special guest at the Grimsby Town official photo-shoot.
Declan took his place in the team photo alongside the players, coaches, Rob Scott and Paul Hurst.
The brave youngster from Scartho was given only six months to live after being born prematurely at just 27 weeks.
Declan’s grandparents, David and Ann Gunn, had originally written to the club to ask if we would donate a raffle prize for a fundraiser to celebrate Declan's 10th birthday.
The fundraising event will be held on his birthday on Sunday at Lucarly's in Humberston.
Proceeds from the auction will be donated to the baby unit at Grimsby's Diana, Princess of Wales and the Doncaster School For The Deaf, which Declan attends every day.
