A pound for my friend

Give me a pound to help my friend walk

A four-year-old fundraiser is asking people to pay just £1 so her best friend can have an operation that could help her walk.

Casey Burke needs 25,648 people to make that donation, to be precise.

She and her pal, Matilda Duncan, five, have lots in common. They are both twins, and Casey’s sister, Carmel, is good friends with Matilda’s brother, Matthew.

They are all pupils at Coteford Infant School in Fore Street, Eastcote. Both girls also have cerebral palsy and cannot walk without assistance.

There is an operation that could help them walk unaided and, although Casey is not eligible for medical reasons, Matilda is one of a rare few who can have the life-changing surgery.
