Fun day

Young Jessica raises thousands at family fun day in Penwortham for research into NF1

A young girl who has Neurofibromatosis (NF1) - a genetic condition which affects muscle tone, nerve pain and hypermobility has raised more than £2,600 to aid with research.

Seven-year-old Jessica Woods organised a family fun day with her mum, Krista Bradley and dad, Gary Woods, at The Rene Sladen Centre for Guiding, in Penwortham.
The money will go towards more research into NF1 at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, where Jessica is being treated.
Her family has set a target of £100,000, and with this new total, have raised around £11,000. Donate via www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/nf1army
