A fundraising walk organised to give a toddler with an incurable illness a dream holiday to Disneyland has raised more than £2,000.

Paige Scott, aged two, the niece of Crackers and Chaps employee Sophie Fisher, was diagnosed with the incurable white matter brain disease earlier this year.

Those diagnosed with the illness will lose motor function, speech and sight, and dramatically deteriorate. The toddler has a life expectancy of three to four years.

The 16-mile trek was organised by salon owner and Stuston resident Donna Thomas.

Leaving Attleborough, where Paige lives, they set off at 9.45am on Sunday. It took about five hours for the group to finish the walk, which concluded with a barbecue.

Mrs Thomas told the Diss Express they wanted to raise the funds for a holiday before the toddler lost her sight.

“It was perfect weather conditions really, as it was cloudy and not too hot,” she said.

“The first ten miles were fun, but everyone found the last few hard. We enjoyed it though.”
