Seven-year-old Phoebe Small has global development delay, which affects her learning and movement skills, her ability to walk or talk and interact with others socially and emotionally.

A fundraiser held at the Winscombe community centre, in Sandford Road, on Saturday was organised by Phoebe’s friend eight-year-old Grace Henderson and a bouncy castle, face painter and raffle were available.

The chair costs £3,000 but the event still leaves Phoebe about £1,000 short of her target which would allow her to replace her current chair with a terrain wheelchair more suited to her requirements.

People can still donate online to help Phoebe reach her goal.
