Two fund raising events are coming up - both aimed at helping a little girl with cerebral palsy walk unaided.
Vivi Gregory-Osborne, seven, of York Avenue in Windsor, has a severe form of the condition and her family is trying to raise more than £50,000 to pay for operations and treatment to help her walk unaided.
She has already undergone a half hour procedure, where surgeons cut the nerves holding her legs together which is aimed at stopping further deformity.
Vivi suffers from spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy that affects her arms and legs and will need years of operations and therapy.
This Sunday at Sanctum on the Green in Cookham Britain's youngest award winning head chef Luke Thomas will be doing cooking demos as well hosting a cheese and wine tasting, cocktails and live music. The Taste of Summer masterclass starts at 4pm.
Tickets will cost £10 on 01628 482638 or 07545 189629.
Also on Thursday, May 23 James Manwaring, head of music at Windsor Boys School is putting on a concert there. His wife used to teach Vivi at the Lawns and is now at Vivi's Oakfield school. The Spring Concert starts at 7pm and features the Royal Harmonics, Windsor Glee Club, Windsor First School Choir, Windsor Upper Schools Choir and Big Band.
Book on firstname.lastname@example.org, pay on the night - cost £10.
All proceeds from both events go to Vivi.
