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.
