A campaign to held a severely disabled Doncaster boy walk for the very first time has raised nearly £4,000 in just one week.

William Moreland, three, needs to find £70,000 to fund treatment in the United States which will help him take his first steps.

The brave Balby youngster, who has already overcome a series of health battles, suffers fom spastic quadiplegic celebral palsy which means he cannot walk, cannot care for himself and has to use a wheelchair.

But scores of big-hearted fundraisers from across the country have already chipped in with donations - and plans are already being drawn up for a series of major fundraising events to help the cash roll in.

Mum Michelle, 43, of Newbolt Road, said: “The response so far has been amazing. We’ve raised a lot in such a short space of time. Everyone is full of ideas and suggestions.”

A family fun day will be held at Woodfield Club, Balby, between 1pm and 5pm on Saturday with cake stalls, a children’s disco, hair and beauty and food and drink stalls among the attractions.

A website to donate has been set up at www.justgiving.com/Williams-Wish2Walk and updates are available through William’s Wish To Walk Facebook page.

Text donations can be made by texting WWTW70 and an amount to 70070.
