Hutton Moor Leisure Centre hosted a charity week to raise money for a young member of its jump and jiggle class, who suffers from a rare brain condition.

Katy Davies attends the class, which encourages children to climb, jump, roll and balance using soft play.

Katy is just three years old but has juvenile xanthogtanuloma, which took more than a year to diagnose.

The activities, which included a sponsored walk and a cake sale, were to raise awareness of the condition, which presents itself as skin lesions.
