Mum Zoe Clarke completed a sponsored swim at Sleaford Leisure Centre last Tuesday, raising around £850 to help a 10-year-old with cerebral palsy regain her independence. Zoe, 30, of Sleaford, who has Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegia, which makes it difficult for her to walk, said the swim was ‘absolutely amazing’ with the support of family and friends, covering half a mile.

The money will help kit out a special bedroom for young friend Sophie Nugent, of Worthing, Surrey who also has the condition, made worse by epileptic fits.
