Harvey's family are asking locals to support their quest to have a plane named after him.

The family of an eight-year-old High Peak boy who died last year are campaigning to get an aeroplane named in his memory.

Harvey Marshall, who spent most of his short life in hospital being treated for a number of complex medical conditions, sadly passed away last October.

Now his family are hoping to win a competition being run by holiday company Thomson to name their new 787 Dreamliner plane.

Little Harvey was known to his family as “super mini man” and his mum Lian and the rest of his family are asking locals to vote to call the new plane by his nickname.

Lian, of Furness Vale, said: “It would be really good to know that there was a plane up in the sky named after Harvey.

“He used to have a toy aeroplane that he always used to play with so he’d love it.”

The Thomson competition is asking for people to suggest names for their new Dreamliner. Suggestions are open until November 16 and then the five entries with the highest number of votes wilL be submitted to a judging panel who will select the winning entry. As well as naming the plane, the winner will also receive £2,500 in Thomson holiday vouchers.
