A grand ball to raise money for a Weston toddler with cerebral palsy has been put back until next year.

The ball has been organised to raise money for a life-changing operation for Rosie-May Edwards.

Rosie-May’s parents Josie Edwards and Simon Hughes are trying to raise £100,000 to take her to America for selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) surgery as it is not available on the NHS.

The operation will enable her to take her first steps and walk free from pain.

Jacob Baird received the operation in 2016 and his mum Nikki Baird is organising a ball to help Rosie-May.

The grand ball will take place at Weston’s Grand Pier on March 23 at 7pm.

Tickets, priced £40 per person include a three-course meal, and can be booked from Nikki on 01934 413139.

A race night will also take place at Weston Cricket Club on November 23 at 7pm.

Tickets are £5 and can be booked from the number above.
