A milestone target has been reached in a fund-raising mission to send a youngster to America for surgery that could help her walk for the first time.

Little Mae Louisa Lilly Fox, three, needs £70,000 for the life changing operation but thanks to a fund-raising push £10,000 has already been raised in just three weeks.

Mae was diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy - the most severe form of the condition- when she was just a year old.

Mum Amy, 28, of Birch Road, Cantley launched the Hope4Mae campaign in a bid to send her for pioneering surgery in Missouri.

She said: “We have been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of people.”

£1,380 was raised at the Jamie McDonnell fight at the Keep moat Stadium and Jamie and his brother Gavin have also signed a pair or boxing gloves each which we are going to raffle or auction and all proceeds will go to Hope4Mae.

More fund-raising events are planned including a fun day at Auckley school on Friday May 24. Visit Hope4Mae Just Giving Page Follow on Twitter @hope4mae
