A FURTHER £1,500 has been raised to help a ten-year-old girl access surgery that could change her life.

Megan Sadler, from Hubberston, has scoliosis - curvature of the spine - which requires surgical intervention.

She has to wear a restrictive back brace for 23 hours a day, and if the curvature worsens she will need growth rods inserted into her spine until she has stopped growing.

So far, £14,392 has been raised to help the aspiring young gymnast travel to Shriners Children's Hospital in Philadelphia, US, where she has been offered vertebral body tethering (VBT) surgery to correct her spine.

The fundraising effort has been given another boost this week, as Milford Haven Round Table president Rob Dorey presented a cheque for £500 to the family.

An amazing £1,000 was also raised by 'Pembrokeshire Care, Share and Give', Haverfordwest Post Office manager Trudie Rogers and staff, and Spar Milford Haven.

Laura, Megan's mum, said: "I would just like to thank Trudie and all the post office staff, Amanda and Pembrokeshire, Care, Share and Give, and absolutely everybody who has supported us with this.

"We are really blown away by everyone's generosity and will be eternally grateful to everyone who has help make this possible for Megan.

"The support and love we have felt from all across Pembrokeshire has been phenomenal."
