CHOCS AWAY: Daisy gave up sweets, cakes and chocolate for her brother

CHOCS AWAY: Daisy gave up sweets, cakes and chocolate for her brother

First published in News

SIX-YEAR-OLD Daisy Rainbow and her little brother Oscar have been invited to the silver anniversary of the Dyspraxia Foundation this weekend.

The Muscliffe siblings were asked to the formal conference at the Connaught Hotel after Daisy raised more than £1,000 for the Foundation by giving up sweets, cakes, ice-cream, chocolates and biscuits for a month.

The young fundraiser completed the tough task just four months after Oscar, four, was diagnosed with severe oral and verbal dyspraxia, which severely limits his ability to speak coherently.

The Rainbow family have been invited to this weekend’s conference as a thank-you for raising the money for the foundation.

Mrs Lee said: “Our special thanks goes to Daisy and her family for her support.”

Ooops, Muscliffe, is that a suburb similar to Eastcliffe and Westcliffe?
E.G. Spelt wrong.
Whilst there is indeed a Muscliffe Lane - recalling the name of the old nearby farm, modern Muscliff the suburb does not actually have an 'e' in it.

Does it really matter how it's spelt. This article is about a little girl who has raised £1000 for charity. Well done Daisy Rainbow. What a lovely name that is.
