Fundraising for six year old Bootle girl to have life changing operation supported by MyCSP

7 Feb 2017

The family of six year old India Gunning, who suffers from cerebral palsy, are currently raising funds for India to undergo a life changing operation that could help India walk unaided.

India was born 10 weeks early and, due to a birth trauma, suffered a grade four bleed on the brain meaning she now lives with cerebral palsy. Now, her family are raising funds for her to undergo Selective Dorsal Rhizotomomy, an operation that could significantly improve her quality of life.

India’s family have been raising money through a number of fundraising events including a fun run in Walton Hall Park, Liverpool, undertaking the Three Peaks Challenge, and a charity night.

The MyCSP Community Fund is supporting the fundraising with a £200 donation. The Fund was launched just over 12 months ago to support local causes and has so far donated over £26,000 to 43 different fundraising campaigns.

David Boardman, Communications Director at MyCSP, comments, “India’s family and friends have clearly done an enormous amount to raise funds for this important operation, and we’re delighted to be able to support them.”
