GENEROUS supporters raised an amazing £450 to help a young boy with cerebral palsy get the vital treatment he needs.

A fundraising jumble sale took place in the Guide Hut in Battle on March 22 in aid of 10-year-old Joshua Smith.

The money raised will go towards specialist intensive physiotherapy at the Footsteps Centre in Oxford.

This treatment is not funded by the NHS but is vital to help keep Joshua walking.

Last year he had a hip operation and the expertise of the physiotherapists and the determination Joshua has have meant he is now back to using his walking frame.

He recently took part in the Hastings Mini Marathon, which is testament to how far he has come, but the physiotherapy three times a year remains vitally important to continue this progress.
