An appeal to buy a brave eight-year-old girl from Attleborough, who has cerebral palsy, an electric wheelchair has received a £1,000 boost.
Sophie Warnes has difficulty operating her manual chair due to a lack of mobility in her arms.
Her parents launched an appeal to raise the £12,000 to provide the new chair to give her more freedom.
Attleborough Boxing Club gave a £1,000 boost to the cause with a wine raffle at their recent boxing show, club funds and a donation from Anglian Demolition MD Lee Storer.
The next fundraising event for Let’s Get Sophie Moving, will be a pre-loved clothes, shoes and accessories sale and will take place from 7pm to 10pm at Attleborough town hall on Thursday, December 4.
There will be a tombola and refreshments available.
For more information call Mrs Seaman on 07733406525.
