editorial image

More than £2,888 was raised at a table top sale in Wragby Town Hall on Saturday to help a young girl get the treatment she desperately needs.

Avaline Morrell, aged 6, suffers from severe autism and has the communicative skills of an 18-month-old child.

The aim of Saturday’s event was to raise money for therapy, which she recieves close to her home on the north bank of the Humber.

Avaline, who has no communication,social or imaginative play skills at all, needs ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis Therapy)

She is receiving 10 -15 hours ABA Therapy a week but needs 30 hours.

Several family members live in the Wragby area.

The event was organised by her great grandma who unfortunately died six weeks ago but family and friends in Wragby carried on to make the event a success.

The event featured a tombola, a 50/50 game, a raffle.

An auction was also held recently to raise additional funds.
