The Grove School has organised a host of events to raise money for Aimee-Leigh Groves.

Aimee-Leigh suffers from epilepsy and neurological abnormalities.

Her condition has left her unable to stand or walk and she has regular seizures.

Her mother Bernadette said her condition is deteriorating and that her daughter has lost interest in her toys and playing outside going outside to play.

Headteacher Sonia Taylor said: "Bernadette, one of our parents from Loggerheads, provides round-the-clock care for her beautiful daughter Aimee-Leigh.

"Aimee-Leigh is disabled and her condition is currently undiagnosed.

"Her family are raising funds to take her to The John Hoskins Specialist Hospital in America.

"At the Grove School we are running a series of fundraisers which include selling wristbands, guess the name of the bear and a non-uniform day to help raise awareness and funds for Aimee-Leigh.


"We are hoping to raise up to £1,000. All funds will go towards helping Aimee-Leigh get to America for treatment.

"Aimee-Leigh is a precious member of our community who is really struggling and we are proud to be supporting in any way we can."
