A big team effort for Chloe

A great effort from the staff of ICare Group in Blackpool who have raised 261 over a 24-hour period to help a brave young girl.

Chloe New, 10, from Fleetwood, who suffers from cerebral palsy, is having an operation in America in the near future to help her walk again but funds are needed for the operation and her rehabilitation afterwards.

Her family have worked very hard fund raising to obtain the money she needs, which is in the region of 70,000.

The local radio - Radio Wave - did a week long fund raising event, whereby their two morning DJs Ged and Hayley were locked in for five whole days and nights and were not allowed out unless they raised at least 10,000. They went on to raise a fantastic amount of 15,000.

We wish Chloe all the very best of luck for her operation and the future ahead of her.
