A WEEKEND of fund-raising is to be held to raise money for a young cerebral palsy sufferer from Rishton.
Little Taylor Rayson, six, suffers from the debilitating illness and could be wheelchair-bound in her teenage years if she doesn't receive vital physiotherapy.
The specialist physio is held at a centre in Bedfordshire and costs £3,000 for a month's visit.
Taylor's mum Clare, of Allan Critchlow Way, said she desperately needs to raise the cash to ensure Taylor's condition continues to improve.
She said: "Taylor spent some time at the centre in June and she has come on brilliantly.
"The change in her has been great.
"It has improved her life now and for the future. The physio is helping to increase the strength in her legs because as she gets older it's harder for her to carry her own weight. Taylor is only little so the physio is helping to make her stronger. She is really feeling the benefits."
A karaoke party night will be held at the Rishton British Legion on Walmsley Street on Friday 25 August from 7.30pm.
The evening, which is for adults, will include a raffle and an auction, and several people have even volunteered to have their heads and legs waxed.
The following day, a table top sale will be held at the Legion between 10am and 2pm and then a summer fair will begin for the children.
Everyone is welcome to turn up at the events to help raise money for Taylor.
