Neighbours throw surprise prom for teen with cerebral palsy


After 16-year-old Stacie Stroud’s prom was cancelled because of coronavirus, a group of her neighbours and friends came together to organise a night she would not forget. The teen, who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, was “devastated” after the leaving do was called off, and her neighbours threw her a street prom to make up for it instead. The whole community in Andover, Hampshire, worked together preparing for the evening on Friday June 26, with her father Steve, 42, decorating the street with fairy lights and balloons. Stacie was unaware of what was being planned and spent the day inside with her sister, Samantha, 19, who did her hair and make up.
