FRIENDS and family are hosting a garden party to raise money for a tot’s oxygen therapy.

Amelia Lea – now two – was left severely disabled at birth after the umbilical cord became wrapped around her neck three times.

And now her parents Crystal Lea and Dean Walton, from Golcar, are trying to raise over £4,000 so Amelia can have Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT).

They believe an oxygen chamber will give the tot a new lease of life and she might even have a chance of walking one day.

Friends and family have stepped in to help.

Crystal’s cousin Susan Lea, from Cowlersley, and her mum Jayne Carter and friend Nancy Ladlow have organised a garden party to raise funds for Amelia’s treatment in Leeds.

The party, at Nancy’s house at 201 Netheroyd Hill Road in Fixby, is open to everyone.

The July 10 event, which starts at 12pm, will see entertainment from Colne Valley Black Belt Academy and local band Friends of Dave.

Susan said: “People of all ages are welcome to the garden party with games such as, hook a duck, beat the goalie and pull a string.

“We will also have a bouncy castle there and face painting.

“We also have some volunteers that are having their chest, back, or legs waxed.

“And we will be having a fantastic cake stall and hot beef sandwiches, a BBQ and more.”

The fundraisers are supported by Huddersfield’s Pendragon Round Table who have also supplied them with T-shirts and a banner.
