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.
“Rosie had her assessment at Bristol Children’s Hospital and sadly it was confirmed she is not a candidate for the operation on the NHS.”
A race night is taking place on November 23 at Weston Cricket Club at 7pm in aid of the appeal.
Tickets, priced £5, can be bought from Margaret on 01934 708835.
