A fundraising stall will be launched in Worksop market today in aid of a Worksop girl who suffers from a rare disability.

Amelia Sullivan was born with Mowat-Wilson Syndrome which affects her physical and mental development, leaving her unable to walk or talk.

As the 12-year-old grows, she is need of special equipment to help her move around the house which will greatly improve her quality of life.

Eager to help, family friend Lydnsey Preston contacted Worksop fundraising team Team Mcg who have so far accumulated £10,000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Team Mcg wanted to give something back to the hospital who treated another 12-year-old Worksop girl, Jessica McGlone, after she was born with a limb disfigurement.

The stall will feature a selection of cakes for sale, a tombola, raffle tickets, facepainting and competitions with prizes to be won, such as guess the number of sweets in the jar.
