Hosts a charity fundraising event at the Richmond Hill Hotel to raise £50,000 on behalf of Poppy McLaren - Friday 28th September 2012

Due to a prolonged labour, Poppy contracted pneumonia while still in the womb and now requires major surgery that will take place in the USA. Poppy spent the first month of her life on a neonatal ward, during which an MRI scan confirmed that she had sufficient damage to her brain. At 9 months old Poppy was diagnosed with cerebral palsy with consultants saying that she may never be able to walk, talk or eat. Despite this, Poppy has continued to make huge improvements and continually impress her doctors, family and friends with her progress. The evening's proceeds will be used to help Poppy in reaching her target for major surgery and additional ongoing treatments. - - Friday 28th September 2012 (6 images)
