A little girl’s dream of being able to walk is one step closer thanks to kind hearted lawyers.

The charity committee from Atherton Godfrey solicitors organised a live music gig which saw around 200 music lovers fill a local pub and help to raise £4,500.

The Seventy Band, entertained the crowd and opened the show with a performance of Ho Hey, a song they recorded especially for four-year-old Mae Fox, from Cantley.

Mae was born with Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy which left her unable to walk.

Earlier in the year, she went to America to have pioneering surgery, after her parent’s Matt and Amy managed to raise over £80,000 to pay for the operation.

Help is still needed to raise the money for the aftercare to complete the treatment.

Maria James, a lawyer with the firm and vice chair of the charity committee, said: “We fell in love with Mae, her family and her cause and wanted to do all we could to help this little girl achieve her dream of being able to walk.”

Mae and her family attended the event.

Mae’s mum Amy, said: “This is a fantastic amount of money which in real terms can provide two intensive therapy courses and leg splints We are very grateful to Atherton Godfrey for their support.”
