THE family of a tot struck with a brain disorder are gearing up to get a charity challenge in full swing.
Demi-Leigh Turner, aged two, has Rett Syndrome which has caused her to suffer from epilepsy and left her unable to walk.
A group of keen golfers and window cleaners, including Demi-Leigh’s uncle Neville Hunter, of Poplar Road, Skellow, and her grandad Stuart Staley, of Charles Street, Skellow, have decided to do a sporting challenge which will see them play five rounds of golf on an 18-hole course in a day.
The dusk ‘til dawn challenge will take place on Tuesday at Owston Hall’s golf course and there will also be a raffle.
The group want to raise around £1,000 which will be donated to the Rett Syndrome’s registered charity RettUK.
Organiser and Demi-Leigh’s auntie, Becky Staley, 28, of Poplar Road, Skellow, said: “My niece is one of the youngest sufferers who was diagnosed before she was three-years-old but she’s still a happy, loving child. We are hoping to make that little bit of difference by providing money that could help to maybe one day find a cure.”
