Children enjoyed a Halloween party at Kidsville on October 31 to raise money for a Weston-super-Mare girl with cerebral palsy.

The event was held to raise money for four-year-old Rosie-May Edwards who needs specialist surgery to help her walk.

Rosie-May’s parents are hoping to raise £100,000 to take her to America for selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery (SDR).

Nikki Baird, whose son Jacob had the surgery in 2016, is helping with the appeal.

She said: “Back in July the NHS announced SDR surgery would now be available on the NHS but due to funding there would be a strict criteria in order to be a successful candidate.
