Jamie's family asked those coming to wear something bright, or even just a splash of colour.
At 9:25am Jamie set off for the Minster in a horse drawn carriage from his old school, Lord Deramore's in Heslington.

David Dunning reports:
Jamie’s appeal was raising funds to cover his treatment costs in Germany. After these costs, any remaining money will go to help other children with neuroblastoma, either through supporting other children’s appeals, or by funding research, or raising awareness of neuroblastoma. Jamie’s parents will be involved in making the decision about how any money left in Jamie’s appeal will be reallocated.
The appeal will therefore remain open until an ‘In Memoriam’ fund is set up.
