Girl with rare genetic disorder inspires fundraiser

The family of a four-year-old girl with a rare genetic disorder are looking for auction and raffle prizes to help give something back to two charities that have helped her.

Bethany Hepburn, of Washwood Close, Little Hulton, has Wolf Hirschhorn Syndrome, which severely restricts her development and has caused a range of health problems, including a heart defect, epilepsy and sight and hearing difficulties.

Her parents, Shelley and Paul Hepburn, are holding a fundraising night at the Armitage Social Club in Madamswood Road, Little Hulton, on Friday, August 7.

It will raise money for the Wolf Hirschhorn Syndrome Trust and Derian House Children’s Hospice and the family is appealing for items to auction and raffle off.

Anyone who can help should contact Shelley Hepburn on 07588 839312 or email [email protected]
