KIND-HEARTED fundraisers will this weekend launch a bid to buy a disabled girl a wheelchair.
Hartlepool-born youngster Shelby Grainger-Deighton suffers with cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
Her condition means she cannot walk, can only feed herself with support and sometimes struggles to make herself understood.
Every weekend the five-year-old,who lives in Stockton,comes to stay at the home of Hartlepool mum Sharon Llewellyn and her family.
And on Monday Sharon and her friends will launch a drive to raise enough cash to get Shelby a new wheelchair..........
It's a local story for me as I spent most of my life in Stockton on Tees but I dare say the same is happening all over the country.
Note to Tony Blair - stop spending millions on missiles - reallocate it instead to disabled youngsters!!!
