A COUNTY charity has received a £500 boost from the family of a child it is helping to overcome extensive disabilities.

The funds have been given to Megan Baker House (MBH) from the family of Vasili Kalispera – an 18-month-old who is blind, deaf and has cerebral palsy caused by Kerniceterus.

Megan Baker House chief executive, Lee Gough, said: “Vasili is an incredibly brave and determined little boy and is now able to stand, holding onto a ladder back chair and initiate steps – all helping to find ways in which he can become as independent as possible. He is an inspiration to everyone at MBH."

The Moreton Eye-based charity provides free conductive education to children with cerebral palsy and for adults with early onset Parkinson’s Disease.

A very touching story of huge interest to many people.

So surely deserving of a little more care from the HT

To put the headline as just "Headline" is a bit of an insult to this family.

(even worse than the one word lower case rushed headlines on other stories)

Shocked that this family who have been in the paper before because of their child's sad case when he was made brain damage by NHS negligence have not been mentioned in the Malvern gazette from where they are from. They give a lot of money to charity and their own town paper don't recognise. I remember the original story that reached the daily mail and won't forget this family even if their local news paper does. Shameless

My heart goes out to them **** Julie
