Help a friend give his kid a birthday

Help a kid celebrate his birthday for the first time properly.

A good friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, hasn't,two pennines to spare, he works hard but his income barely covers the essentials. He has a five year old due to turn six soon and all he wants is the ability to give hos kid a birthday (presents, cake, etc).

I have taken this off my own back to try and claw in some money to present to him to enable his kid to have some sort of birthday gift.
