Thousands of pounds has been raised to help a young girl suffering from ‘locked-in syndrome’.

Eve Anderson suffered an unexplained bleed on the brain in 2011 when she was eight-years-old, with doctors discovering she had an inoperable tumour on her brain stem which has left her with a form of locked-in syndrome.

Family and friends have been fundraising for the Ashington youngster to help her get the care she requires.

One fundraiser, Giles Evans, is presenting a cheque for nearly £1,500 to Eve’s family at a fundraising event on Saturday, November 30, at Bedlington Market Place Club, at 7pm.

Tickets cost £5, with entertainment provided, and will be available on the night.

Giles, part of the Toontotown group, has taken part in a number of events to raise the money.

Giles has also been shortlisted among six people to turn on the Christmas lights in Bedlington, and should he win has arranged with Eve’s family and Leading Link for the youngster to turn on the lights.
