Chipping Norton dancing queens raise Â£1,500 for disabled girl's physio
Another Â£1,500 to help a five-year-old girl with cerebral palsy was raised at a 60s and 70s disco in Chipping Norton on Saturday night (September 23).
Alex Hutt’s family are hoping to raise £70,000 for her life-changing treatment and the successful night at the Crown and Cushion Hotel will go towards her physiotherapy.
It was Alex’s first ever disco and as her treatment is improving her mobility day-by-day, she was able to enjoy a boogie, which her mother Fiona Hutt said she loved.
“It was great as everyone got into the spirit of it all and people had a great time I hope,” she said.
“I think Alex was a bit overawed by it all but she got up and had a dance and stayed for about an hour.
“It’s good for people to see her and see how well she’s doing, she’s starting to walk independently a few steps at home now as well.”
The total came both from ticket sales and a raffle, with the winner giving half of the prize back for the appeal, plus the venue was donated free of charge.
Organiser Sue Bartholomew, of Bartholomew’s Hair, raised a similar amount with a bingo night in June and Fiona was grateful to her for all her hard work.
“Sue’s done an amazing job for Alex and it means we can pay for three months of physiotherapy for her,” Fiona said.
