Cake Sale for Amelie
Park Grove School Council Hold a Cake Sale to raise money for Amelie.
A little girl, Amelie, from one of our Ebor schools needed our help and School Council decided to hold a cake sale to raise money for her treatment.
Eight-year-old Amelie Round, of class 3G at Tockwith Church of England Primary Academy, was diagnosed with Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP), a lifelong progressive disorder estimated to affect between 0.005 and 0.1 per cent of the population, when she was four.
She cannot walk more than a few steps unaided and falls over up to ten times a day.
Her parents have launched an online fundraising page to raise £100,000 for surgery and other costs in St Louis, Missouri, pencilled in for the school summer holidays next year. Amelie is not eligible for the surgery in the UK.
It is hoped this operation may give Amelie a better chance of walking.
Thank you to all our children and parents for their generous donations of cakes and money.
