A charity fundraiser will be held in Chesterfield to help send a little girl to America for special treatment costing £15,000.

The Brit Bonanza will take place at the Britannia Inn on Old Hall Road on Saturday, May 21, starting at 1pm.

Parents Liam and Amy Fynn are desperate to get treatment for their two-year-old daughter Lilia, who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, which affects the movement of her arms and legs.

Dad Liam, 28, said: “It would mean the world to us to be able to send Lilia to America for treatment.

“We want the very best for our daughter just like any other parents would in our situation.”

At the moment, Lilia can not sit up, crawl or walk, after being born with the condition.

The family managed to raise a total of £14,000 which helped pay for a £10,000 intense therapy course, which was successful.

Now IT worker Liam, of Leeds and school teacher Amy, 33, formerly of Chesterfield, who also have another daughter, Nancy, aged six months, are hoping to raise another £10,000 to go with the £4,000 left over to pay for the treatment.

People can make donations on the door, no tickets needed.

Entertainment includes dance performances, live music and activity bus.
