Disabled 10-year-old takes her first steps after community raise £1,600 in 72 hours

A devoted mum who shared a heartbreaking dream on Facebook in which her disabled daughter could walk has told how it moved her community to raise £1,600 in just 72 hours for a special leg brace - enabling the schoolgirl to take her first steps. Born with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, at just 10-years-old Tarli Staines has already endured four hip replacements and untold pain, yet the little girl's unyielding courage has left her mum, Leonie, 33, "blown away."
