The Hope For Georgia campaign was launched to help Georgia Almquest who has cerebral palsy, which means she is unable to hold her head up, sit or crawl.

More than £20,000 has been raised so far to send the two-year-old to America for specialist stem-cell treatment which will improve her quality of life and, doctors have said, provide her with her only chance of walking.

Further fund-raising is taking place as Georgia may need a further stem-cell treatment.

For more on the campaign, type Hope for Georgia into Facebook, visit www.justgiving.com/HOPE-FOR-GEORGIA or call Natalie on 07407 672443.
